with Patti Morgan

November 7th—December 5th

Date details +
    BOOK CLASS: Tuesdays beginning on Tuesday, November 7 we will offer a book class on Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche's newest book entitled THE LOST ART OF GOOD CONVERSATION. Facilitated by Ms. Patti Morgan, with guest conversationalists along the way, each week will consist of reading the short chapter together, followed by guided meditation instruction and self reflection,  and an opportunity to interact with a community member and engage one another in conversation. 
     
     The Sakyong writes: "I have written THE LOST ART OF GOOD CONVERSATION  as a guide to help us bring a little light to the current dark age. The point is to reconnect with the sun of goodness in our hearts and use speech to awaken naturally good qualities in ourselves and others. This approach is based on the path of the warrior, someone who is committed to helping others and who uses every day life activity to foster awakening. In this book there are guidelines on how to connect with people genuinely, and how not to be swayed by negative emotions.  This will bring dignity to our daily lives. If enough of us practice this, we will have a huge impact on the future of this planet."
