Tibetan Meditation:

Wednesday evenings 7 to 8:30 PM

Instruction and practice with Lhoppön Rinpoche, who will guide us with Concentration meditation to Dzogchen. Working with breathing exercise to still the mind, we are guided in the stages of meditation with Rinpoche’s assistance. Giving inner attention without judgement, without trying to change what is found, we develop gentle, loving acceptance. Quietly bringing presence to our inner lives, we discover who it is we really are and how we are bonded with all sentient beings. We find habit is not intrinsic; it is developed and can be dismantled. Slowly, our minds settle into a new habit of profound stability which allows us to surf the waves of everyday life with compassion and wisdom.

Donations are genuinely appreciated ($5- $10 per class is suggested).

Dances of Universal Peace

The Dances of Universal Peace are simple, meditative, joyous, multi-cultural circle dances that use sacred phrases, chants, music and movements from the many spiritual traditions of the earth to touch the spiritual essence within ourselves and recognize it in others. The Dances promote peace and integration within individuals and understanding and connection within groups worldwide. There are no performers nor audience: new arrivals and old hands form the circle as everyone sings and dances together. Jen Friedman and Britt Ripley lead a warm and welcoming Dance circle that invites us into a rich contemplative experience while also creating space for us not to take ourselves too seriously; encouraging open and heartfelt connection to arise naturally within the group.
To learn more, please contact Jen at 303-746-5191 or jennifer@jenniferfriedman.com
