Making Peace Possible: The Shared Wisdom of the Human Heart with Sakyong Mipham
May 7, 2015, 6:30pm
Fourth Presbyterian Church
Sakyong Mipham, leader of Shambhala and bestselling author of Turning the Mind into an Ally, will offer a realistic possibility of peace in his talk “Making Peace Possible – The Shared Wisdom of the Human Heart.” The Sakyong will talk about the humanizing quality of mindfulness meditation, and how we can break society down into simple interactions where you can make a world of difference.
