Our communities have been forever changed by the effects of social media, computer technology and globalization in a way that has reduced the amount of time we have to spend with family and friends and changed the way we communicate with them. We are often communicating in sound bites and photo captions that do not create a sense of real connection with the people we care about. In fact, some feel we have lost the art of communication.
Sakyong Mipham shows us a way to do better.
The Shambhala Meditation Center of Denver invites you to a profound weekend program that will give you insights to the importance of conversation, tools to improve your conversation ability, and practice in the art of good conversation.
Join us for the Friday night meditation and discussion with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and guests to hear a variety of perspectives on why good conversation is so important in these challenging times. The first step toward forging a stronger relationship with our friends, family and fellow citizens is to develop the relationship we have with ourselves.
Then on Saturday, Lodro Rinzler will host a day-long retreat with teacher Susan Piver, featuring a talk by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
The full retreat includes the live events on Friday and Saturday and a six-week online companion called The Cushion Tour. The online event features exclusive content and behind-the-scenes footage from the tour as well as the live talks and live panel discussions with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche from every stop in Denver, New York and Toronto.
