Join Pema via livestream from Omega Institute – May 27-29

Dear friends,

In just two weeks, Pema will be offering her final public program at Omega Institute. The sold out weekend will be live-streamed, so you can take part from wherever you are, for up to 60 days. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience Pema and the wisdom that she has been sharing at Omega for almost 25 years.

The Ancient Practice of Love and Compassion
May 27–29, 2022

Pema will share the practices that have most impacted her life. Through the practices of “compassionate abiding” and “exchange,” known in the Tibetan language as tonglen—or “sending and taking”—she teaches how we can use the most difficult or painful parts of our lives as stepping stones to open up and connect with the world.

These simple, time-honored practices, rooted in Tibetan Buddhism, have the power to dissolve the boundaries that separate us from others, and to help us engage the world in an open and deeply connected way. This weekend will be transformative for anyone, those who are new to the journey and seasoned practitioners alike.

The live online weekend includes talks, guided meditations, and question-and-answer sessions with Pema Chödrön and Tim Olmsted.

Registered participants receive access to this weekend workshop On-Demand until July 31.

Beyond Polarity

Differences must be not merely tolerated, but seen as a fund of necessary polarities between which our creativity can spark like a dialectic.

– Audre Lorde –

Beyond Polarity

“This animated video offers hope for creating together the world that honors our collective needs by building on what unifies us. To make personal change that scales up to social change requires meeting our most important needs and recognizing that people are different. These differences can add color and richness to life and they can also be polarizing. Knowing another person’s needs is a starting point for understanding and co-creating the world that meets our collective needs.” { read more }

Be The Change

Spend some time really listening to someone with whom you have experienced discord. Are you able to discern their needs? If so, does this affect your perceptions of the differences between you?
