You are invited and welcomed to take part in a series of conversations based on Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche’s newest book “ The Lost Art of Good Conversation”. Talking, listening and reflecting are essential pieces to good communication.
In each salon, we will gather in the Halifax Shambhala Centre Community Room to meditate (instruction will be given, if needed), listen to one chapter on the topic selected for the day, reflect on what we have heard, and have a conversation about that.
Open to all — no previous meditation experience needed.
April 19 Session:
The Art in Conversation, lead by Conner Loomis
Words and Breath, lead by Shastri Mary Campbell, Fri. May 4, 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Kindness Will Let You Feel Again, lead by HSC Director Michelle Munro, Thurs. May 17, 9:30am - 11:00am
About the Book
In a world of iPhones and connectivity to social media and email, we are all in constant connection with one another. Then why are so many people feeling burned out, distant from colleagues, and abandoned by family and friends? In this new book from the bestselling author of Running with the Mind of Meditation, the Sakyong uses the basic principles of the Shambhala tradition—meditation and a sincere belief in the inherent wisdom, compassion, and courage of all beings—to help readers to listen and speak more mindfully with loved ones, co-workers, strangers, and even ourselves.
Participating in these salons is free, although any donations you wish to offer are always welcome. Please come to any one or all four of the salons.
