with Ella Reznikova & Bill Brauer

February 17th

  • $100 PATRON

We are so pleased to welcome visiting teachers Bill Brauer and Ella Reznikova back to our center.  Please join us in-person for a one-day exploration of conceptual and non-conceptual mind.

While not promising any answers or solutions, we aspire to create a safe and warm environment where we  explore the difference between a confused mind that creates suffering and not -knowing-mind that gives birth to compassion. 

We will begin with learning or refreshing our meditation practice to calm just a little the agitated waves in our mind. Then we will have discussions and  explorative scenarios.  

A light lunch will be provided.
Place  Shambhala Meditation Center, 1899 NE 23rd Ave, Gainesville (entrance through the gate at the back of the building).
