The Open Secret

with Nicholas Kranz
March 6 / 7:00 PM - March 8 / 4:00 PM

We often hear that Shambhala teachings are inseparable from the highest vajrayana buddhist teachings, but what does this really mean? Tibet's "secret" tradition of vajrayana Buddhism has now been translated into most languages of the western world, yet its translation into our modern culture is still very much underway.

In a time when humanity is struggling with issues of fair use of power and ensuring that all beings are treated equally with respect, how can we understand the vajrayana teachings with their profound transmission of our true nature–and it’s use of devotion and the Guru principle–to be accessible and compatible with our modern values? How can understanding our nature benefit our polarized world?
Shastri Nick Kranz will present this rich,  complex subject in a very accessible way. Relatively short teaching sessions will be punctuated with exchanges between participants, with an emphasis on group harvesting of insights along with experiential meditation exercises and contemplations.

Open to all!

Coffee, tea snacks and a reception are included in the price.

You can bring your lunch and eat at the centre during lunch break (12-1:30pm).

Shastri Nick Kranz will also teach the program Ecology of the Heart (March 13-14-15) (125$). The cost for both programs : 250$.

To facilitate the organisation of the program, please register at least one week in advance.
