Acharya Pema Chodron recently (November 2010) taught a program with Mrs. Carolyn Gimian called Smile at Fear that was attended by 3,000 people in the Bay Area. Another 2,000 people from 30 different countries also participated in the program via live video stream. This tremendously powerful event brought together individuals from many different walks of life and wisdom traditions all committed to working with fear and anxiety through the practice of meditation. With the spirit of gentleness and inquisitiveness, Ani Pema Chodron taught us how to befriend our fear to help us find peace in our lives.
The Santa Cruz Shambhala Meditation Group will be featuring a DVD of this program starting on Thursday, January 20, 2011.
We will start sitting meditation at 7:00 PM followed by Smile at Fear. If time allows we will have a short discussion afterwards.
All are welcome!
