Tara Brach: A Place of True Refuge (live)

Joy arises when... (
Against the Stream welcomes Buddhist author Tara Brach for a special evening benefitting Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society.

Join as Brach investigates a place of "true refuge."
In the face of feeling alone and afraid, each of us longs for connection and peace. This talk explores our habitual ways of seeking FALSE refuge. Moreover, it points out that there are archetypal gateways revealing TRUE refuge -- our own awakened heart.

Radical Acceptance
This is a sliding scale event, and all proceeds benefit Against the Stream, its programs, and the scholarship fund. By paying at the highest level one can afford, everyone benefits. Any amount one can contribute above the scale's lower end becomes a tax-deductible donation.
