In Search of “Perfect” Community
Think Big, Go Slow
An Interactive Workshop with Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
Oct. 22 to 24th, 2021
What does “community” mean to you and how have the events of the past year shaped your perspective? Prepare yourself to connect, engage and reflect during the 27th Annual Treasury of Knowledge retreat, a virtual, interactive experience.
During this informative weekend, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche will share essential points of view, practices, and engaged, compassionate action as skillful means for empowering the development and sustainability of kind communities. The retreat will include small group discussions that will offer attendees the opportunity to contemplate and contribute.
