Public Talk with Ven. Thubten Semkye
Way of Compassion Dharma Center, Carbondale, Colorado
Nowadays many countries in the world—including the U.S.—struggle to keep peace within their diverse societies. The media keeps showing more “bad news” that seems to fuel our fear, outrage, and even hopelessness.
But is the situation really that hopeless? Or can these difficult times be used as an invitation to bring our practice off the cushion and into the world as the Buddha taught.
Join Ven. Thubten Semkye as she shares some of the Buddha’s wise words to help us avoid falling prey to these destructive mental states Instead, we can nourish our minds with cool, clear wisdom and empower our hearts with hope and joy.
This is public talk offered by donation. Location: Calaway Room, Third Street Center, 520 S. Third Street, Carbondale, CO 81623.
