    February 18: Shastri Angelika Behrooz
    Regard Your Life as a Dream

    This gem of Buddhist wisdom comes to us from the Indian teacher Atisha who lived about a millennium ago. The saying is meant to be contemplated, internalized and then recalled during daily life. We will explore how this awareness practice could help reduce stress and make us more pliable and relaxed. And more profoundly, we’ll investigate how it can help us move toward the wisdom that penetrates the nature of reality. Please join us for an evening of exploring an alternate reality!

    Shastri Angelika Behrooz was introduced to meditation in 1987. Since then the practice and study of Shambhala Buddhism has been her main passion. She has accomplished many group and solitary retreats and in the late 1990s started to guide and teach students. In her professional life as a PhD physicist, she engaged in research and many years of teaching. She now owns a bookstore with her husband.
