From Sacred Outlook to Sacred Activism
Date(s) - Dec 14, 2019 - Dec 19, 2019
Event Sponsor and Host
with Acharya Marty Janowitz
This is a time when uncertainty, menace, and perhaps defenselessness are vivid sensations in our world, affecting us, others, and our environment near and far. These are not abstract threats. They provoke all manner of seductive projections and emotional reactions – fear, anger, pain, and resentment among them. What can we do as practitioners to be a force for peace, safety and compassion? What could enlightened engagement, protection and activism mean?
This will be a hands on program attending to View – underlying principles within the Shambhala tradition of Enlightened Society, Practice- guided meditations as well as physical, creative and sensory explorations of our bodies and the surrounding Mexican community, and Action- exploring how Shambhala teachings on kindness, courage and wakefulness might be applied in our specific contexts of active engagement with community service, activism and just plain life. Our goal is to stimulate and challenge us to engage powerfully and creatively in the emergence of a truly sustainable and basically good world – supporting, enduring and enriching personal communal and global pathways.
This program is open to all levels of practitioners; no prerequisites.
This event is hosted by Casa Werma.
