Celebrating Imperfection - with David Fowler
Chaque semaine le jeudi
This five-week course is about celebrating the value of our own imperfection. Through the five weeks, we will be investigating the confidence, compassion,and connection that are the result of being genuine. Using The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown as a guide, we will look at the overlap between the discoveries of Brené’s research and the Shambhala teachings. Material Fee: You may want to buy Brené’s book. Copies will be available at the centre. Price: Pay what you can, or

Thu August 16th: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of religious or spiritual tradition, or the lack thereof. There are normally many more people in attendance at the Centre for sitting than are listed on this Meetup group, and practice happens regardless of numbers who sign up here. When at the centre please do not hesitate to approach one of our members with questions you might have about the centre and its meditation offerings. The Ottawa Shambhala Centre has elevators and automatic door buttons on all entrances and washrooms; we use LED lights and have windows to let in natural light. We have a nut-free policy and do not burn incense inside the centre out of respect for those with allergies. We aim for a non-scent practice at the Centre and ask meditators not to wear perfumes or colognes. And we aim to be a welcoming and warm place to practice. If you have any questions regarding this invitation, please contact us. More information is also available at: http://ottawa.shambhala.org/monthly-calendar/ .
