The workshop will be taught by Paul Shippee, long-time dharma student of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Suzuki Roshi and founding teacher at Naropa University. Sessions will include discussions, group practice and meditation periods. Using contemplative methods to examine the Heart Sutra, we take a deeper look at emptiness and wisdom. Compassion is a natural result of realizing emptiness. Through Compassionate Communication (such as Non-Violent Communication, “NVC”), language and mindfulness come together to create the wisdom and warmth of community. At the Madison Shambhala Center, 408 S. Baldwin St. Suggested Donation: $95.00. Please pre-register as soon as possible by calling 441-8868 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
