Register Now for a Rare Bay Area Weekend Retreat with Pema Chödrön, one of the most distinguished Tibetan Buddhist teachers of our time.
In one of her final teaching appearances in the San Francisco Bay Area, beloved teacher Ani Pema Chödrön will teach us how to work with our fear and anxiety using gentleness and inquisitiveness. We do this through the practice of meditation which leads us to befriend our fear and helps us find peace in our lives.
Ani Pema plans to spend more time in retreat in the coming years. This is a rare opportunity to spend a full weekend with her in person. This retreat includes additional meditation sessions led by Carolyn Rose Gimian, the editor of Smile at Fear, a book of teachings by the great Tibetan master Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche.
Pema Chödrön’s accessible style and deep understanding of meditation practice and her insight into how to apply the teachings to every day life makes this program suitable for those new to meditation as well as longtime practitioners. We expect this event to sell out. Please register early.
Ani Pema would like us to have lunch together on Saturday and Sunday. You may buy lunch as part of your program ticket for $10 per day. Or you may bring your lunch. We are offering either a delicious vegetarian/gluten-free option or a turkey option made by the Boilerhouse restaurant at Craneway Pavilion. If you do not purchase lunch now, you must bring your own food. We will not be able to accommodate onsite requests for food and there are no restaurants nearby.
