Videoconference with Frank Ostaseski

Pubblicato il

Frank Ostaseski will led a live Videoconference on the Zoom platform with the title Embracing Mystery and Wonder. The encounter with Mystery is often marked by awe and wonder, as when our jaws drop open at the sight of unimaginable beauty. The usual activity of the mind stops and our consciousness rests. We become absorbed in tranquility and humbly bear witness. In such moments, time no longer devours our lives. In this talk Frank will explore the place of Mystery in our spiritual practice and everyday lives. WEDNESDAY the 4th of NOVEMBER from 8 pm to 9.30 pm. Participation in the live meeting is reserved for AMeCo Members.

BOOKINGS ARE OPEN

Lama Shenpen was born Susan Kathryn Rowan in Essex, England, in 1946. She first encountered Buddhism while studying Geography and Sociology at Reading University, where she became secretary of the University Buddhist Society and had early encounters with Sangharakshita and Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche amongst others. Lama Shenpen has trained for over 50 years in the Mahamudra & Dzogchen traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. She has spent over 12 years in retreat and has been a student of Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, one of the foremost living masters of the Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, since the late 70s. Lama Shenpen is fluent in Tibetan and has translated a number of Tibetan texts into English for her students. On Khenpo Rinpoche’s instructions she produced a seminal study of the profound Buddha Nature doctrines of Mahayana Buddhism, published as The Buddha Within, and gained a doctorate in this from Oxford University. She is also the author of There’s More to Dying than Death. Shenpen is now the Spiritual Director of the Awakened Heart Sangha, and spends most of her time in semi-retreat at the Hermitage of the Awakened Heart (Fortress of Enlightenment – Changchub Dzong) her home and the retreat centre in North Wales, United Kingdom. She has students worldwide who are studying her Living the Awakened Heart Training, a structured learning programme in meditation, reflection and insight, devised especially for westerners, to transmit the most profound teachings of Mahamudra and Dzogchen in an accessible, experiential way. Khenpo Rinpoche has subsequently encouraged Lama Shenpen to develop her teaching activity further, and she is the author of the on-line teaching programmes ‘Discovering the Heart of Buddhism’ and ‘Trusting the Heart of Buddhism’.

The practice of awareness, sati-mindfulness, in these difficult times, is the title chosen by Joseph Goldstein for his talk offered to AMeCo’s yogis on April the 17th, during the lockdown. We are pleased to continue to publish videos of the many initiatives that took place during the lockdown. Since health and economic uncertainty weighs on our country (as well as on most of the world), the AMeCo continues to offer its initiatives on Zoom for free donation. This choice is made possible by the extraordinary covid emergency funds allocated by the Italian Buddhist Union (UBI) to all associated UBI Centers.

We are going through a global emergency that most of us have never experienced in our lives. We all need moral and spiritual support and we believe it is important to use all the possibilities made available by modern technology to stay close to each other.

The A.Me.Co., in fact, in compliance with the provisions of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, suspended all its activities on site starting from March the 5th. We immediately considered it wiser and ethically correct to diligently comply with the provisions of the Government in line with the most accredited health indications.
