Summer Writing Program

Sunday, June 9 - Saturday, June 29 // Boulder, CO

With the title Against Atrocity we mean to signal both a committed antagonism, and a fact of relation: we live, and think, and write in an era of unrelenting ecological and political atrocity; it is the situation, the context, the defining field we’re up against. Examples of its many violences come too readily to mind, to screen, to our communities of care and concern––a vampiric regime of extraction and extinction, of cages, borders, and (surplus) populations all the more on the move, on the lam from lawless law. And as a first principle we’ll try to stand with Amié Césaire, and reject the “sterile attitude of the spectator” as the terrible array of devastations wrought through the history of racialized capitalism hurtles on and on; as artists, thinkers, and language-workers we’ll try and press our imaginations forward and against atrocity.

Authentic Leadership for Naturals

Thursday, June 27 - Friday, June 28 // Boulder, CO

$495

Now is the time to cultivate authentic leaders and authentic organizations. In a climate of high consumer expectations and greater transparency, blind spots in authenticity can have a catastrophic impact on business. However, organizations that prioritize authenticity can unlock tremendous amounts of creativity, innovation and genuine passion in their teams. This workshop is for entrepreneurs, CEOs, investors, organizational change makers, trainers and coaches in the natural products industry; experienced and emerging leaders who want to create healthy, generative organizations and communities; and leaders committed to cultivating authenticity, collaboration, innovation, joy and effectiveness as they engage in the complex issues of a rapidly growing industry.

A Morning Talk with Pema Chodron

Wednesday, July 17 // Ward, CO

Join Ani Pema on Wednesday, July 17th at 10am for a special talk at Phuntsok Choling, a Dharma Center located 45 minutes outside of Boulder, CO.
 
Ani la will give her talk in the context of Nyingma Summer Seminar, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche’s annual summer teaching program, where she has taught many times before. Located in the mountains outside Boulder, the program takes place in a large tent open to the fresh mountain air, sun, and strong elemental feelings. 
 
All funds from her talk will support a retreat building and Temple dedicated to Arya Tara, the female Buddha known as “the mother of liberation”, who specifically removes obstacles for practitioners in their work for the benefit of beings. The Tara Dzong is located on her teacher Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche’s retreat land in Crestone, CO.
 
Tickets are limited. This event sells out quickly every year.
