    Her Life & Teachings 


    Shastri Joanne Martin Braun

    Over the past 30 years Buddhist teacher Pema Chödrön has had a tremendous impact on the lives of thousands of people. Author of numerous books videos and online programs, Ani Pema is a senior teacher (Acharya) in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition. Her teachings are both heartfelt and practical as she makes this profound wisdom accessible to all.
    Please join us for a special evening of discussion about the life and teachings of Pema Chödrön. For those who are interested there will also be a six-week video class on Saturday mornings called Making Friends with Yourself. More information about the Pema Chödrön Summer Series as well as registration details can be found here:

    We begin our Open House evenings at 7:00 p.m. with meditation instruction and a short period of sitting meditation practice.  At around 7:30, we provide either a short talk or video followed by a group discussion. 

    Afterwards, we adjourn for tea and snacks in our cafe-style community room and chat with Shambhala practitioners and other visitors.

    There's plenty of time for visitors to ask any questions they may have and also to explore in greater depth the topic of the evening. The evening ends between 8:30 and 9:00.

    Everyone is welcome!
