|Worldwide Practicing Peace Birthday Retreat with Pema Chodron
with Acharya Pema Chodron
Sat July 14th: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
In Room(s): Main Shrine Room
Pema is in retreat for all of 2012. She’s invited you to join her.
Pema’s birthday is on July 14. To honor the occasion, the Pema Chödrön foundation is holding a worldwide Practicing Peace ‘virtual retreat.’ She’s invited all of us to take half of that day (or longer) as a retreat. You could do this alone at home, or gather with friends at the Halifax Shambhala Centre to share in this experience. Pema filmed a teaching just for this occasion, with advice, encouragement and meditation instruction. To have her friends and students, from around the globe, ‘practicing peace’ on her birthday would be a wonderful offering to Pema.
Schedule of the day:
9am.......Opening chants and meditation
11am......Viewing of Ani Pema's recorded teaching
Noon.......Potluck lunch and birthday cake!
This is the first time in the decades that Pema has been teaching that she’s asked her friends and students to gather in such a way.
There’s no cost to do this, but a suggested $5 donations will be collected on site to cover the cost of the cake and refreshments!
Any offerings should be done directly online, and will go to support a very special project that Pema is dedicated to: the building of a 3-year retreat center (Pema Chödrön Drupde) to support a remarkable, and threatened, lineage of nuns from Tibet.
We would like to ask everyone to register for the retreat, so we can let Pema know who is practicing and where they’re from around the world:
