Judy Lief for the start of her annual visit to Maine with an evening dharma talk on

Wednesday June 12, 2019

at our center located at 19 Mason Street, Brunswick Maine.

Judy Lief’s talk this year will present an introduction to “Sharpening the Sword of Prajna: The Awakening of Insight.

The talk will be drawn from her long study of Chogyam Trungpa’s teachings and her preparation for the Profound Treasury Retreat in Saco  June 14-23.

“Prajna is of absolute, utmost importance in Buddhism. As you are progressing on the path, even if you are not yet enlightened, there are always glimpses of prajna. Prajna discriminates between entities very clearly. It distinguishes between what is and what is not, but it does not promote or reject anything.” Chogyam Trungpa

Suggested donation $20.

Doors open with registration at 7pm. 

Talk will begin at 7:30PM.
