Special Events with Venerable Thubten Semkye
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.
Thursday, November 30th at 7:00 pm – We’re All in This Together: Compassionate Leadership and Interdependence: We all have the capacity for leadership whether it be in our community, workplace or even in our families. But all too often the leader loses their way by thinking far too much of themselves and their position rather than the collaborative process that leadership entails. Join Venerable Thubten Semkye as she shares some thoughts about the qualities needed and pitfalls encountered in our endeavors to affect positive change in our troubled world.
This is public talk offered by donation. No need to register. Location: Calaway Room, Third Street Center, 520 S. Third Street, Carbondale, CO 81623.

Saturday and Sunday, December 2nd and 3rd – Road Map to Awakening: The 6 Paramitas, Weekend Retreat: Space is limited for this program and registration is required.
We are delighted to have Venerable Thubten Semkye from Sravasti Abbey return to our center to continue teaching on the bodhisattvas’ practices of the 6 Paramitas (6 Perfections). In this retreat, she will focus on the Paramita of fortitude – a crucial state of mind to develop during these times of unrest and uncertainty. Venerable Semkye will delve deeply into the benefits of fortitude as a powerful antidote to the mind of anger and hatred and a true friend to the heart of compassion. The retreat will include meditation, group discussion as well as silence during the morning sessions.
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.
