NB – Empathy & Emptiness Retreat with Buddhist Monk Gen Dorje

August 13, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pm

Based on the exquisite and powerful teachings from the Summer Festival at Manjushri Center in the U.K., Gen Kelsang Dorje will give a day course on understanding empathy and emptiness. Buddhist teachings on emptiness, the true nature of things, help us to dissolve the barrier between self and other, which makes us feel isolated, independent, and separate from other living beings. 

Our ability to let go of our self-centered view of the world and understand the experience of others is fundamental to finding fulfillment and meaning in our life. Join us for an enjoyable exploration of these ideas and gain practical tools on how to grow your experience of letting go of your ordinary sense of self—and embrace the warmth and joy of identifying with and connecting to others.

This is a special talk by Gen Kelsang Dorje, a Buddhist monk and qualified teacher who spent years teaching in the Greater Boston area with the Serlingpa Meditation Center. He is now the Resident Teacher of the Kadampa Meditation Center Chicago. We are very happy to have him back to visit and share this essential Buddhist wisdom.
