Norm Braden, an experienced and senior practitioner, invites everyone interested in the Buddha’s teaching that there are “no things out there” to an afternoon exploration of “sunyata”, or “emptiness.” Informed by insights from biology and physics, as well as the teachings of Peling Tulku Rinpoche, Khenpo Tsultrim, and others, Norm will guide us in a rich afternoon program on Sunyata, a topic which is foundational to Buddhist teachings. Norm will encourage participants to be actively involved through discussion and offer opportunities for reflection through periods of sitting and walking meditation. Anyone curious about Buddhism, beginning students, or advanced practitioners are all warmly welcomed to this afternoon.
Norm Braden is retired and lives in Madoc. He met his first teacher, Chogyam Trungpa, in 1970 and his second teacher, Peling Tulku Rinpoche, in 1984.
Tea and coffee will be provided.
The fee for this retreat is to cover the centre’s costs. In keeping with Buddhist tradition, the teachings are offered free of cost. You are welcome to make an offering to express gratitude for the teachings as your own practice of generosity.
