Healing and Resiliency as the World Falls Apart
Lama Rod Owens
Saturday, February 28; 9:00am - 1:00pm
Suggested donation: $15-30 registration + teacher donation (we encourage you to consider teacher dana equal to or greater than the amount you gave for registration)*
The world is unsteady and chaotic. Many of us are being confronted with the reality of death and change in a way we thought we never would. In the face of all this, it is hard to maintain our physical and emotional balance. Resiliency is such an important skill to develop right now. Resiliency is about how well we are able to meet the challenges of our lives with a sense of openness and curiosity that helps us to regain our balance. Balance means understanding how to return back to a sense of being grounded in order to meet challenges directly. In this workshop, we will explore healing and resiliency through meditation, breath practice, gentle movement, visualizations, and group discussions.
*In keeping with the Buddhist tradition of dana (generosity), the suggested donation amount for this offering does not include any payment for the teacher. Please consider giving a donation to Lama Rod for this offering to our sangha. You may give a donation at the time of registration and give later donations through our teacher dana link. Everyone is welcome to all of our events regardless of ability to donate.
Checks can be sent to InsightPV, 116 Pleasant Street, Ste 242, Easthampton MA
Lama Rod Owens was officially recognized by the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism after receiving his teaching authorization from his root teacher the Venerable Lama Norlha Rinpoche (below) when he completed the traditional 3-year silent retreat program at Kagyu Thubten Chöling Monastery (KTC) outside of New York City. It was during this time that he dealt with years of past pain and trauma and found forgiveness and compassion for himself, what he views as a critical step before truly being able to help others.
