Enrique Collazo of Against The Stream Friday Night Dharma Talk

July 20 at 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Rebel Saints Meditation Society is proud to present a Friday night Dharma Talk and Saturday City Retreat with Enrique Collazo of Against The Stream Buddhist Meditation Society.

Enrique was trained by Noah Levine and Vinny Ferraro of Against the Stream. He believes deeply in the power of marginalized voices to change the world. He spends most of his energy bringing the practice of  mindfulness to teens through   Challenge Day where he facilitates social and emotional learning workshops for thousands of young people each year. Enrique is a  passionate advocate for bringing meditative interventions into jails and addiction treatment facilities.

Buddhism is a relational practice, whether we are contemplating the ethical teachings/precepts, the heart practices, or the intention not to cause harm. It’s always asking us to look at how we relate to ourselves and others. In this day-long adventure, we will be doing the core Buddhist practices. We’ll start the journey with our relationship to ourselves, where we will be offered the challenge to love all parts ourselves, aided by the formal practice of Forgiveness, Compassion, and Unconditional Friendliness. After grappling with both the difficulty, and joy of meeting our essential selves, we will move outward through simple but powerful relational practices.

No experience necessary, just a willingness to get uncomfortable.
