The Lost Art of Good Conversation

About This Event

These three workshops work with The Lost Art of Good Conversation, the newest book by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.  The Lost Art of Good Conversation is a journey to help us get back to the basics – to a life in which we are fully present and connected to ourselves and others. Using the principles of the Shambhala tradition – meditation and a sincere belief in the inherent wisdom, compassion, and courage of all beings – Sakyong Mipham, the current lineage holder of Shambhala, explains to readers how to listen and speak more mindfully and effectively to loved ones, coworkers, strangers, and even ourselves.

Seating is limited to 30 people.  Register early!

April 21: Working with Ourselves:  In this first workshop, we will examine how we talk to ourselves and explore how we can treat ourselves with kindness, love and respect.

May 19: Engaging the WorldIn this second workshop, we look at how we engage our world. We will explore the role of conversation in how we relate to others in our work, families and community.

June 16: Enriching Our RelationshipsIn this final workshop, we examine the role of conversation and how it shapes society. We will explore how we can manifest authentically in a time of increasing speed, divisiveness, cultural differences, technologies and other challenges we may not feel ready to handle.

Format of the workshops:  We will use video teachings by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, guided meditation instruction, “dialogues” to practice with each other, and questions and discussion.  Lunch will be provided for each workshop.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To be more present and engaged in the world, to be of benefit to others. Vincent

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
