Online Retreat with Pema Chödrön starting June 8
The Heart of the Matter: How to Live with Compassion and Courage
Please join us at the time of Pema Chödrön’s 80th birthday—and just before she embarks on a yearlong retreat—to experience her generous heart and deep wisdom in a very special online course. Featuring seven new talks filmed this spring in the intimate setting of Gampo Abbey, Pema’s home, this is a rare opportunity to study closely with this extraordinary teacher.
The teachings will be presented over six consecutive Wednesday nights, 6:30-9 PM. For those who cannot attend in June, we will be repeating this program in the fall. For more information including cost and materials, please see our calendar page for this program.
