A Visit from Acharya Adam Lobel, February 10

The Phoenix Shambhala Meditation Center is delighted to welcome Acharya Adam Lobel in a special Arizona visit on Monday, February 10, 2020 at 7 pm. Acharya Lobel will be giving a talk on dharma practice, with a focus on answering our questions on how to practice in this groundless time.

If you plan to attend the program, please register at the event page so that we can plan for space. Seating is limited. Cost is $25, which will directly support the Phoenix Center. You also have the option of giving an additional heart gift directly to Acharya Lobel if you wish.

Acharya Adam Lobel is a teacher in the Shambhala tradition, a Buddhist minister, and a scholar of philosophy and religion. Adam began the path of meditation when he was 16 years old after his first taste of real pain, outrage at social and ecological injustice, and wondering a bit too much about what reality was all about. He soon encountered the writings and vision of the Tibetan meditation master, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Inspired by the path of warriorship and the vision of enlightened society, he pursued meditation retreats and training in the Shambhala Buddhist path. For ten years Adam presided over the Pillar of Practice and Education within Shambhala, responsible for training, curriculum, and path development.

Acharya Lobel will also be giving a separate talk on Tuesday, February 11 for the ASU Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability. In “Eco-Grief and Collective Trauma in the Climate Crisis,” he will discuss how we can overcome the inner, social, and ecological alienation of our times as we begin to deal with the climate crisis. Please visit this page for information and registration for the Sustainability event, which will be held at Community Christian Church in Tempe.
