Deepening Your Practice

Cultivate peace

If you have an established meditation practice and are interested in Tibetan Buddhism, we have a range of in-person and online offerings taught by Tibetan Buddhist and Western masters. Teachings are in the Namchak lineage, a branch of the Nyingma tradition, and can take you from the beginning of your journey all the way through a three-year retreat and beyond.

About this event

This month’s Sangha gathering: Tuesday, August 23rd @ 5:30-7:00pm MDT (click HERE to view in your time zone)

August Theme: Our Human Nature

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that as human beings we are part of the natural world, intricately connected to all forms of life and to the planet itself.

Each month, we come together as a community to meditate, share, and connect around our practice. Each gathering is facilitated by a different Namchak peer, staff member, thought leader or teacher around the theme of the month. The agenda closely follows our Learning Circle model, which includes check-ins, a Dharma talk or shared resources around the theme, journaling, small discussion in break-out rooms, full group discussions and group practice. The culture of this event encourages active participation, but participants always have the right to pass.

We will share the monthly theme, resources, and discussion questions with our community ahead of time. We invite you to submit ideas for monthly themes and discussions that you would like to explore as well!

Zoom link will be provided upon registration. Please note: Confirmation emails from Eventbrite often end up in spam/promotions tab. Please check there if you do not see the confirmation email with the Zoom info.
