Special Events with Venerable Thubten Semkye
Save the Dates: May 18th – May 20th, 2018
We are grateful to have the opportunity to host the Venerable Thubten Semkye for three days of precious Dharma teachings. Venerable Semkye is a nun at Sravasti Abbey, a Buddhist monastery founded by the Venerable Thubten Chodron. You can learn more about Venerable Semkye on their website – Venerable Thubten Semkye.
We are looking forward to having Venerable join us on Friday, May 18th for a public talk in Carbondale.
Venerable returns to continue teaching on the 6 Paramitas moving from the last topic of fortitude that we discussed in December of 2017 and into the perfection of joyous effort. Join us on Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20 – Road Map to Awakening: The 6 Paramitas, Weekend Retreat.
In this retreat, Venerable will focus on the Paramita of Joyous Effort – a crucial state of mind to develop during practice as to keep us from becoming too bitter and brittle. Though Joyous Effort may start as persistence, we can truly develop a joy for achieving Enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings.
Times: Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Cost: Suggested donation for the retreat is $65. Of course, all Dharma teachings are offered on a free-will donation basis and you may offer any amount. You can make a secure online donation below using a credit card or PayPal account.
