Contemplative Dialogues with Lama Rod Owens - Caring for our Grief in Pandemic Times

May 31st, 2021 at 5pm (NY Time Zone - GMT-4)

Zoom Meeting

This month “Contemplative Dialogue” will bring important reflections on Contemplative Psychotherapy and its practice. We are delighted to host and talk to Lama Rod Owens about "Radical Presence – Taking care of our grief during the pandemic", on our second event this year.

On May 31st, 2021 at 6pm (Brasilia Time Zone) we will host Lama Rod Owens for an open, edgy and direct talk on how to deal with our afflictions and suffering during the pandemic. As Lama Rod suggests, sitting and looking together at our suffering “is to be guided through conversations and contemplations on issues that impact all of us, but that we are afraid to talk about. We need to talk about sex, race, identity, gender, class, power, depression and everything else that we tend to reject”.

Lama Rod Owens is a buddhist master, writer, activist, instructor and yoga teacher authorized by the Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism and is considered one of the leaders of his generation of buddhist teachers. He holds a PhD in Buddhist Studies at Harvard Divinity School and is the co-founder of Bhumisparsha, a community that studies and practices Tantric Buddhism.

His work has been published by Buddhadharma, Lion's Roar, Tricycle and The Harvard Divinity Bulletin. He has given lectures, retreats and workshops in more than seven countries. His last book (extremely connected with our current moment) Love and Rage: The Path to Liberation Through Anger, was published in June 2020 and has received very good reviews for its prophetic truth, up-to-dateness, honesty and wisdom, when dealing with challenges the current generation is having to wake up to.
