Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche teaches at Omega Institute

Is it possible to turn emotions into empowering energy? Channel pain into compassionate action? Understand the science and healing strategies behind post-traumatic growth?

Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche teaches at Omega Institute this fall, along with David Kaczynski, brother of the “Unabomber,” and author Michaela Haas. The three teachers will help answer those questions during “Compassion, Forgiveness & Resilience: A Buddhist Approach to Finding Strength Through Right Action,” in a workshop to be held October 21-23, 2016.

Over the weekend, the three teachers will share stories and lectures plus proven meditation practices for changing suffering into strength and happiness. Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche will teach methods for transforming emotions into empowering energy; David Kaczynski will describe how he channeled pain into compassionate activism; and Michaela Haas will explore the new science behind posttraumatic growth.

Students will depart the workshop with new ways to find compassion, forgiveness, resilience, healing and happiness in difficult times.
