Monday 8 October
Bring & Share Supper @ 6pm
Healing Relaxation@ 7p
Akong Rinpoche, our reincarnated Lama brought a special teaching to help us develop compassion in the form of Tara Rokpa Therapy. The course begins with visualisation and healing relaxation exercises and it is very serendipitous that a trained Tara Rokpa Therapist, Jayne Pilossof will be arriving in Cape Town on the 8th October- the day which marks the 5th anniversary of Rinpoche's passing.
Everyone is invited to a welcoming Bring and Share supper at 6pm followed by a relaxation session at 7pm led by Jayne. What better way for the sangha and friends to spend this evening than to be together experiencing this gift that was brought to us by our precious teacher. "Before we can tame the tiger we must first track it down" - Venerable Tulku Akong Rinpoche.
There is no cost for the healing relaxation. Donations welcome if you wish
