Community Meditation and Teaching w/ Lama Rod Owens
Tuesday, Aug 15th, 6-8:30pm at the O.N.E. Community Center
20 Allen St. Burlington, VT
Suggested Donation: $15
This retreat is hosted by the Burlington Dharma Collective with support from Ruach HaMaqom.
We are living through an apocalypse struggling to learn lessons, heal and envision and different future through a pervasive pandemic, economic instability, political unrest, climate change, and various forms of systematic violence. We can't do this alone and we need support. Join Lama Rod in this community teaching and meditation practice as we engage in contemporary tantric practices that incorporate not just profound and accessible tools for liberation, but also link these practices with current justice movements.
This night will include snacks, an interactive talk with Lama Rod, and guided meditation practice. No experience with meditation is necessary to attend. All are welcome!
