International Guest Speaker
Lama Palden will offer teachings on the awakened feminine from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. She will reveal through teaching and guided practices how to access a profoundly compassionate, strong and wise feminine aspect within us, critical for healing and growth. Therapists and spiritual practitioners will benefit from an evening of rich teaching and meditation from a foremost American Buddhist teacher and psychologist. This is Lama Palden’s first Australian visit.
8th March 2016
Tuesday evening, 7:30pm-9:30pm
All Sessions by Dana (Donation).
Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The teachings flourish in an atmosphere of generosity and gratitude, and these qualities in turn support the growth of wisdom and compassion in the practitioner. The instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a specified fee and it is up to individuals to determine the amount of dana they would like to offer. It can sometimes be easy to become confused when we are new to this and we wonder “how much should I give?” This is a relevant question in the material economy but an appropriate dana cannot be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course (e.g., administrative & venue costs).
Lama Palden is one of the first women in the West authorized to teach Buddhism by her teacher Kalu Rinpoche, in 1985. She teaches meditation and philosophy at her Sukhasiddhi Center (www.sukhasiddi.org) in California and she maintains a private practice as a psychotherapist. Lama Palden stresses the vital importance of integrating psychological growth and spiritual practice so we do not short circuit the process of becoming fully human and do not relegate spiritual practice to an isolated corner of life.
