Special Sangha Meeting November 13, 10:15-11:45

November 7, 2022

On Sunday, November 13, 2022, from 10:15-11:45am PST, KCC will hold a second community listening session to allow sangha members to share their ongoing reactions to the allegations against the Gyalwang Karmapa. The event will again be facilitated by facilitated by LaShelle Lowe-Chardé, a professional mindful compassionate dialogue consultant.  The session will focus on the following goals:

  • Allow practitioners the opportunity to share and learn from each other how the Karmapa allegations have impacted their process.
  • Learn what others are doing about it in their practice. This could range from the very practical to the profound.
  • Practice a way of coming together that we can use for addressing future challenges.

The event will involve facilitated small breaout groups sharing sessions. If you plan to attend, please help us organize the breakout groups by indicating whether you plan to attend in person or via Zoom using the RSVP form at the link below no later than Thursdays, November 10.

The ZOOM link for this event will be the same as that morning’s Sunday AM Shamatha.

We look forward to this opportunity to once again share with each other our thoughts and feelings on these difficult subjects with open and compassionate hearts.
