Community and Lineage
March 20th
Led by Carolyn Gimian, with Jon Barbieri

Time:  9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. MST

In the Buddhist tradition there are the “Three Jewels”: the Buddha, Dharma, and the Sangha. The third retreat will focus on the Sangha (Sanskrit) or community of practitioners. The dynamics of a group of like-minded individuals who practice meditation and study Buddhism will be explored. We will also touch on the topic of how these teachings which began 2,500 years ago were brought forward from generation to generation to this day and the role of the teacher/student relationship.

Readings from: Selected Community Talks by Chogyam Trungpa, 1970s and 80s, as well as material from The Path of Individual Liberation, Volume One of The Profound Treasury of The Ocean of Dharma. The community talks can be found here
