Dancing in Groundlessness: A Mahayana Awakening

October 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm America/Los_Angeles

USD 40

with Melissa Moore
Contact person: Robert Fox

Mahayana Awakening
This three-hour workshop explores the experiential realization of shunyata, or emptiness as understood on the Mahayana path of Buddhism. Shunyata means empty of ego, and yet, ego offers us a path of realization. The paradoxical topic is explored with humor and compassionate exchange to embrace the inevitable truth of our natural openness, and celebrate that.

Please come for a morning of guided meditation and experiential exploration  embracing our natural openness and vulnerable hearts.

This program will be held online on the Zoom platform.

Melissa Moore is senior teacher in the Shambhala Tradition and co-founder of Karuna Training, a training certification in Contemplative Psychology. Melissa has been teaching Buddhism, Shambhala, and Karuna Training worldwide since 1995. She has a MA  in Contemplative Psychotherapy and a Ph.D. in Psychological Anthropology. She currently lives in Denver and is the steward of Karuna Training.  http://www.karunatraining.com.
