Sakyong's "Lost Art of Good Conversation" Book Tour Livestream
Chicago Shambhala Meditation Center – Join us for an exciting day of coverage of the Sakyong's Book Tour with livestream showing of the retreat program in Toronto: "Engaging with the World." THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO VIEW HIS TALKS LIVE! The Sakyong highlights the importance of good conversation in these challenging times, exploring how we can awaken to our lives through the simple act of conversing with others. Our communities have been forever changed by the effects of social media, computer technology and globalization in a way that has reduced the amount of time we have to spend with family and friends and changed the way we communicate with them. In fact, some feel we have lost the art of communication. In addition to Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, teachers will include Acharya Fleet Maull and Lodro Rinzler. Guest panelists are musician Tara Slone and filmmaker Michelle Latimer. Learn more about the book and Cushion Tour. www.goodconversationbook.com **SIGN UP BEFORE NOV 8 AND RECEIVE A COPY OF THE BOOK WITH YOUR PROGRAM PRICE!!** Register here: https://chicago.shambhala.org/program-details/?id=330601
