Two Special Guest Speakers: Congressman Tim Ryan & Tsoknyi Rinpoche
By Tara Brach | Mar 27 2012
In April I'm looking forward to introducing you to two wonderful guests at our Wednesday night River Road class.
--- On April 11, Congressman Tim Ryan will be speaking to you about the content of his book, A Mindful Nation. He is passionate about the power of mindfulness and the ways this practice is already having a profound impact on areas of health, education and wellbeing across the nation. Congressman Ryan is really looking forward to meeting you...to connecting with a local community that is dedicated to awakening our hearts with these practices. His book will be available and he will stay after class to sign copies for you.
--- On April 18, Tsoknyi Rinpoche, one of the teachers who has most deeply influenced my practice, will be guiding the meditation and offering his teachings. He has written a new book, Open Heart, Open Mind: A guide to Inner Transformation, that will be available for purchase. In his talk (as in the book) Tsoknyi Rinpoche will explore how it is possible to lead a compassionate life, regardless of the circumstances we are in. His own experience both as a Tibetan master with a deep realization of the nature of mind, and as a husband and a father of two daughters, makes him a invaluable guide for those dedicated to spiritual awakening.
I hope you'll be with us for both of these extraordinary guests!
