The Lost Art of Good Conversation, Open Sky Shambhala, Thursday, 25. July 2019

Book study group:  
In our world of smart phones & connectivity, we are all in constant touch with one another. So why are so many people feeling burnt out, distant from colleagues, and abandoned by family & friends? Each session of this class includes guided meditation, a talk or reading of the chapter, a contemplation, and a discussion.
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 listen and speak more mindfully with loved ones, co-workers, strangers, and even ourselves.
Come explore Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche's new book that offers simple, practical advice to help us become better listeners and appreciate the people around us and the lives we are living.
Each class will cover one of the 42 short chapters of the book. Each chapter can be understood by itself without having read the previous chapters. Feel free to come every two weeks or intermittently or just drop in one time. No previous meditation experience is necessary.
