Peace From Chaos
A Tibetan Buddhist approach to making sense of your life:
* Public Talk - Friday April 27, 7 - 9pm
* 2 Day Workshop - Sat Apr 28, 9 - 5pm & Sun Apr 29, 1 - 5pm
Location: East Plains United Church
375 Plains Road East
Burlington, Ontario L7T 2C6
The Tibetan Buddhist tradition of lam rim, meaning the stages of the path to enlightenment, organizes all of the teachings of the Buddha into a logical, practical order that shows us where to start and how to progress on the spiritual path. It is a path of study, contemplation and meditation that leads us from the chaos of our everyday lives to the pinnacle of our spiritual potential, and is useful for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. The Friday night talk will provide a spiritual and philosophical foundation for entering this path and finding peace and meaning in our lives. Saturday and Sunday will combine teaching, discussion, mindfulness techniques and meditation to develop our basis for contemplation and ignite our practice.

Amy’s teaching style emphasizes a practical approach to integrating Buddhist philosophy into everyday life which led her to co-authoring the book Buddhism in a Nutshell.
