UPCOMING EVENTS PART OF THE SECOND BUDDHA EXHIBIT
Monday, April 1 @ 6pm:
Dominique Townsend, poet and Professor of Religious Studies at Bard College, gives a reading and discussion of Terdak Lingpa’s poetic dream yoga instructions.
Join us at 6:00 PM Thursday, April 4, as Lama Rod Owens connects the Second Buddha’s teaching with contemporary concerns. Perhaps the most radical act now is to be our most open and vulnerable selves allowing our broken hearts to be glimpsed. In this glimpsing, we can learn to allow our broken hearts with its fear, trauma, and ignorance to inform our social change work. Radical presence is the practice of allowing our broken hearts to show us how to be free and to help others to get free.
