As part of DoTERRA Toronto Regional Summit 2017
The Shambhala Meditation Center of Toronto invites you to a profound weekend program that will give you insights to the importance of conversation, tools to improve your conversation ability, and practice in the art of good conversation.
Join us for the Friday night meditation and discussion with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and guests to hear a variety of perspectives on the vision and practicalities of using conversation to benefit our own lives and the world. When we are armed with a sincere belief in the inherent wisdom and compassion of others, we can take our first steps towards being helpful to the world as a whole.
Then on Saturday, Lodro Rinzler will host a day-long retreat with teacher Fleet Maull, featuring a talk by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
The full retreat includes the live events on Friday and Saturday and a six-week online companion called The Cushion Tour. The online event features exclusive content and behind-the-scenes footage from the tour as well as the live talks and live panel discussions with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche from every stop in Denver, New York and Toronto.

Face-to-Face Seminar: Pulling Back the Veil and Responding to What We Find Beneath
The self-control mindset, which is deeply embedded in Western culture, can result in various “cognitive blinders”. This can make it difficult, if not impossible, to recognize the signs of stress and see the real stressors that are often behind the “misbehaviours” that are seemingly caused by poor self-control. This class explores how Self-Reg can help us “pull back the veil” created by the self-control mindset. This will enable us to use the steps of Self-Reg to understand ourselves, our children and other people more deeply and respond to the stresses that become visible when our cognitive blinders are removed.
