"Always think only of the good of others. The point of warriorship is to become a gentle and tamed human being who can make a genuine contribution to this world. The warrior’s journey is based on discovering what is intrinsically good about human existence and how to share that basic nature of goodness with others." -Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

A traditional practice for bringing spiritual teachings alive in our daily lives is the use of slogans – condensed memes designed to provoke wakefulness and skillful means as circumstances arise.

During this program we will explore the 53 warrior slogans and commentary developed by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and discuss how to apply such teachings to the challenges and opportunities presented in everyday life.

All are welcome. Beginning and experienced meditators are encouraged to attend. Registration is limited, so sign up soon.
