    TIBETAN MOMOS and MOVIE NIGHT!

    Friday, January 25:  Dinner, 5:30pm, Free Movie, 6pm 

    Featuring:  “Road to Peace: The Journey Begins”

    In a world dominated by suffering and violence, how can we create peace in our lives? This award-winning film goes on an extraordinary journey with one of the greatest humanitarians of all time, the Dalai Lama of Tibet. The Nobel Peace Prize winner offers a radical vision of how we can create lasting peace within ourselves and on a global level. With intimate behind the scenes access and a candid personal interview, this film is as close to a flesh-and-blood encounter with the Dalai Lama as you can get. Filmed during the Dalai Lama's last UK visit before he stepped down as the exiled Political Leader of Tibet, this film captures his sense of humor, integrity and extraordinary ability to connect with people on a personal level. Demonstrating how any one of us can create change within our own lives and transform the world in which we live.

    Join us for community building!

    $10 for 7 beef or veggie filled momos with salad or $20 for 16 delicious momos with salad.  Can't stay? Carryout available from 4:30 - 6:30pm.

    PRE-ORDERS REQUIRED: Here or Call 502-614-5616

    Pamela Cotton, PhD

    Saturday, February 2, 10am – 1:30pm

    Deepen your mindfulness practice with silence and loving-kindness practices during this half-day retreat.  Set aside this special time for loving-kindness practices for others and for yourself, including self-compassion. 

    Join this extended practice time exploring longer periods of practice in the context of a supportive group setting.  Both sitting and movement practices will be included, as well as a mindful eating practice.  This retreat will be silent except at the very beginning and at the end, allowing the opportunity to go deeper into the practices. 

    All practices will be guided, but some beginning level exposure to mindfulness meditation is a prerequisite.

    $60; Early Bird $50 by January 22.  Fee includes lunch.

    Register here, at the center or by calling 502-614-5616.  Retreat limit - 15 participants.  Some partial scholarships are available.

    Please note that intensive practice is more likely to bring up emotions.  If you are in the midst of processing very strong emotions related to trauma, this may not be the appropriate class for you.  Questions?  Please feel welcomed to contact Pamela at 812-590-3177.

    with Jamie McMillin and Jeff Cavalcante

    4 Tuesdays, 6 - 8pm, February 12 – March 5

    Join us through exploring and discussing the application of nonviolence using collected readings from Strength Through Peace, edited by Coleman McCarthy.  Shared conversation and insights will find us challenging ideas, thoughts and inspiration from a range of writings by the familiar and newly discovered authors.  Topics will range from war to feminism to civil rights, protections for our Mother Earth and more. They will propel our discussions into new approaches for the "ordinary."

    Cost: $35 includes the cost the $25 text book by Coleman McCarthy.  

    This offering is partially underwritten by a grant from The Snowy Owl Foundation. Maximum enrollment: 12.

    Register online at www.DrepungGomangUSA.org, at the center, or by calling 502-614-5616.  Some partial scholarships are available for those in need.  Please email DrepungGomangCompassion@gmail.com

    Jamie McMillin, a retired teacher of 30 years with JCPS Middle and High School students, holds an M.Div. from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and M.A. in Education from the University of Louisville. Some years ago he encountered the work of a Washington Post columnist and American University law professor, Colman McCarthy, and the work of his Center for Peace in Washington, D.C.  Since then, he, with Jeff Cavalcante, has presented discussion sessions on peace challenges toward violence from McCarthy’s collected readings.  Jamie has shared such sessions with high school students, adults and JCPS teachers – practical application for use in their personal and professional lives.  He comments, “These years have been some of the most rewarding and growth inspiring of my life. And, I hope you will enjoy your time together as we dive into these exceptional word gifts for our exceptional times.”

    Jeff Cavalcante considers himself mainly a fellow traveler on the crowded path of life. He believes that to find the answers we must learn to ask the questions. He notes, “Coleman McCarthy jump starts us into thinking about how we can find ‘strength through peace’."

    8 Tuesdays, 6:00 - 8:00pm, March 12 through April 30

    CCT, an 8-week program that develops the qualities of compassion, empathy, and kindness, has come to Louisville!

    Sign up for this unique process of expanding empathy and concern for others, developing your strength to be with suffering and take compassionate action, and building resilience to prevent compassion fatigue. CCT was developed by Thupten Jinpa (principal English translator for His Holiness the Dalai Lama) at Stanford University with a team of contemplative scholars, clinical psychologists, and researchers.  During our 2-hour sessions you will explore training your mind and developing skills in relating to yourself and others by intentionally choosing compassionate thoughts and actions. With these skills you will enhance your personal relationships in order to make a positive difference in the world. CCT supports your own health, happiness, and well-­­being. Research suggests that by increasing self-­­compassion CCT can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, and enhance connections with others.

    Weekly sessions employ input and discussion, in-class exercises and daily meditation practices to develop loving-kindness, empathy, and compassion, as well as “real-world homework” assignments that nurture compassionate thoughts and actions.  

    Priced according to your ability: $150, $265, $370.  Those able to pay more make assistance available to those in need.  Some partial scholarships are available. 

    Enrollment limit for the class: 15 students.  Registration closes February 26 or when full. 

    CCT involves a daily guided meditation. A commitment to practice between meetings and attending all 8 sessions is strongly recommended. 

    Register here or at 502-614-5616.
