Six Week Course
Tuesdays, 9 - 10:15am CDT
30 June - 4 August 2020
In this six-week summer meditation series we will focus on Buddhist teachings on Finding Refuge — where and who we turn to when the going gets rough. We’ll look toward examples of courage, compassion, and wisdom, explore practices that can help us connect with these qualities within ourselves, and most importantly, connect with each other in sacred community. Each class will include a short Dharma talk, guided meditation, and an opportunity for courageous conversations. This Buddhist meditation series is open to new and continuing students.
WARNING: There may be Mary Oliver poems and One Song Dance Parties and other unconventional methods used to explore this very traditional teaching!
Kelly’s meditative journey began more than twenty years ago and has included many different styles of practice and paths of study. She has completed the two-year Shambhala School of Buddhist Studies; Sutrayana Seminary; a six-year advanced Buddhist studies program at Diamond Mountain University; and many individual and group retreats, including several that were a month long. Having received formal instruction in different Tibetan Buddhist lineages, Kelly has found a wonderful integration of deep practice and study realized in the context of everyday life.
