Meditation and Relationships: How to Love
and Understand Ourselves and Others

Marcela Calvijo |  Sunday, June 26 | 1:00pm - 2:30pm

There is no doubt that we love others, that we wish them well and want to help them. So why are our relationships often as difficult, short-lived, or filled with problems? 


We can understand the role that our onsciousness and mind play in our behaviors and attitudes. We can also learn about mindfulness and attentional practices that give rise to clarity, wisdom, understanding, and love which will radically affect how we interact with our experience and with others.
Come learn how to cultivate these positive qualities, how to preserve them, and how to apply them when we -and others- need them the most.



Since 1995, Marcela Calvijo has been listening to her teacher, Khenpo Pema Wangdak speak of matters that have become increasingly important to her, and in 2003, received novice vows and instruction from Chokye Trichen Rinpoche in the Lumbibi monastery in Nepal and was named Ngawang Samten Drolma. 


She has done meditation retreats at Pema T'sal Monastery in Nepal and at Gampo Abbey in Nova Scotia. She lead meditation retreats and workshops, and teaches the meditation component during Dharma teachings at the Palden Sakya Center.


She is indescribably grateful to HH Dalai Lama and HH Sakya Trizin for their profound Root Teachings, and inspired by the example and instruction received from Venerables Robina Courtin, Tenzin Palmo, and Pema Chodron.
