ENDURING CHANGE: TRANSFORMING HOPE & FEAR
A public talk by Lama Shenpen Drolma

"When times are hard, we are encouraged and energized by the possibility of change, hoping for something better. Yet the future is uncertain, and we have to be prepared for anything. If we have a vision but are tied to certain outcomes and ways of getting there, we can lose flexibility and creativity during the process, or even suffer feelings of defeat if it doesn't happen. Similarly, fear can hamper our efforts, making us reactive and inefficient, feeling depleted and stuck. In this talk, Lama Shenpen will address how transforming hope and fear can steady us, sharpen our judgment and discernment, and sustain the energy needed for the work of bringing about the greatest welfare for everyone."

Ordained as a lama in 1996 by her teacher, Tibetan meditation master His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, Lama Shenpen Drolma is resident lama of Iron Knot Ranch in New Mexico. She has taught the Bodhisattva Peace Training widely since 1991, drawing on her feminist and battered women's activism in the 60's and 70's as she works with students, educators, community activists and those in the helping professions.

The Bodhisattva Peace Training, developed by Tibetan meditation master H.E. Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche makes accessible to people of all religions and walks of life profound methods of the Buddhist tradition for awakening the positive qualities of wisdom and compassion -- the basis of positive change.
