REMINDER -> Open “Fireside” Chat Awakening Circle with Bennett Crawford & Cullen Kowalski at Samsara House 2023, 5/14 7:30-9:30pm

Along the way on my journey, I learned and practiced Tonglen, or the Tibetan meditative practice of compassion.  Tonglen is a powerful practice that will expand the Heart and help us relax more and more deeply with all that is happening in the world; the practice is really quite remarkable..  And it can be done any time we choose!

Why don't we do it together this Saturday night?

After watching this short video from Pema Chödrön speaking about the moment she had to lead a presentation on Tonglen, I feel compelled to share it with you this Saturday night at the Open "Fireside" Chat Awakening Circle.   Come check it out and take away this practice to do in your daily life!

Come share or observe in silence in what it means to become awakened and live an awakened life.
Returning next Saturday night 5/14, Our Monthly Heart Gathering - Open to All [Download PDF Flyer]

If the weather is nice, then we will site outside around the fire pit!

Cullen Kowalski and Bennett Crawford are pleased to invite you to our debut monthly Open “Fireside” Chat Awakening Circle, Saturday evening April 16 from 7:30-9:30PM.  We would like to share with you our direct experiences with meditation in the context of awakening, open heart mutuality, deep healing and shadow work--ingredients which appear to be essential for igniting a whole new way of life of ultimate liberation, freedom and explosive radical love.  This open style peer mutuality circle is about learning from each other how meditation can create the space for not only accelerating the discovery of our deepest Self, but also sharing with each other how meditation can open us to new possibilities.  The results of this way of meditation are extraordinary.  We are in the process of developing leading-edge programs for individuals and organizations to share a variety of meditations which are "full spectrum" in nature so that meditation can be directly applied at all places throughout our day.  Developing and practicing "full spectrum" mindfulness is not just for personal benefit--it's a way of being so that your true gifts can be shared with the world right now and in every moment when it is most needed.

Come join us, we have a seat waiting for you!  We look forward to meeting you, learning about your unique experience with meditation and share with you a vision of what’s possible.

Love,

Bennett and Cullen
