This is also a reminder of our wonderful upcoming talk by Tibetan Buddhist teacher, Khenpo Sodargye, next Friday Oct 24th, from 3-5pm here at York University.

Khenpo teaches at Sertha Larung Buddhist Institute, which is the largest monastery in the world, with over 10,000 monks and nuns studying under his auspices. Since 2013 Khenpo has been invited to give speeches in close to one hundred Universities including Harvard University, Columbia university, and Max Planck Institute.

It is such an honour to have Khenpo in Canada and we would love to have you join us for this exciting complimentary talk.

For all members, please let your students and colleagues know about the website. The more members we have to connect with and share our work with, the more useful the site will be for each of us individually, and the more the site will be able to support the development of all forms of contemplative education.

Make sure to watch out for more upcoming events, call for papers and conferences!

Have a great weekend!

The Mindfulness and Contemplative Education Team.
