If you’re interested in meditation and Pema Chödrön, the Pema Chödrön Foundation is having a Birthday Retreat on Sunday, July 14, 2013, in honor of her 77th birthday.
Since people will be participating from all over the world, there’s no set time to begin the retreat. You can take part by meditating during the time that best suits you in your time zone, whether it is for a few hours, or entire day. This could be done alone at home, or together with friends. You might consider having a meal together and sharing favorite quotes or teachings during the retreat.
They’re going to make available a videotaped teaching just for the retreat so that may be a good reason for signing up right there.
