“How lovely to think that no one need wait a moment. We can start now, start slowly, changing the world. How lovely that everyone, great and small, can make a contribution toward introducing justice straightaway. And you can always, always give something, even if it is only kindness! ~ Anne Frank
Ki Ki, So So!
Join Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and Pema Chödrön—two of the world’s beloved spiritual leaders—as they offer one of their renowned meditation retreats.
Drawing on the depths of Shambhala and Buddhist teachings, Being Brave will explore how meditation practice develops a greater sense of interconnectedness, and rouses strength to cultivate enlightened society.
How can we apply inner peace and bravery to develop outer compassionate action?

— Pema Chödrön
