The Heroic Challenge of Inclusivity: Embracing the Mythical Coward - A Regional Practice Intensive with Shastri Iris Ramos

August 20th—August 23rd

Date details +

    In this time of heightened widespread awareness of social injustices, worldwide pandemic and great personal hardships, many of us face daily fear of loss, illness, death and unspeakable fears of the unknown that we may not have experienced before. Diving into our individual and historic gallery of profound dharmic teachings, experience and training, we can explore those moments of potential warriorship and obstacles with simple human courage and bravery. This practice intensive will emphasize the profound importance of being present, as well as the importance of loving kindness and compassion.

    With that emphasis, this practice intensive will require a deep dive into shamatha, into calm abiding meditation - infused with feeling

    An in-depth description and comparison of current views of Exclusivity and Inclusivity paradigms will follow, with an exploration of personal views and understandings of our own habitual actions/inactions in these difficult times.
