Living With Resilience: How to Become Gentle & Tough with Acharya Fleet Maull

Meeting the demands of modern life in an increasingly complex world has been challenging for some time. Currently, however, we are beginning to experience a phenomenon called hyper-complexity driven by technology, overpopulation and a looming climate emergency, which could greatly destabilize our already fragile and unsustainable systems.

Rampant materialism, consumerism and individualism are not only creating an existential, environmental threat, but they are also tearing the very fabric of society and provoking dangerous levels of political divisiveness and economic disruption. 

How are we to survive much less thrive in these uncertain times?

Join Portland Shambhala for this weekly online class, featuring five pre-recorded talks and two live Zoom calls with Fleet Maull, each followed by a facilitated discussion with the local sangha. 

We will be offering the first recorded talk this upcoming Saturday, April 11, at 11am, in anticipation of the Acharya's first live broadcast on April 18. Remaining broadcasts will be on Saturdays, with a 'make-up' possibility. Registration will stay open past April 15th! If you’ve missed a broadcast, please contact [email protected] to receive video footage.

In addition to weekly classes, the course includes guided meditations, contemplations, and suggested readings. Find out more about this course HERE.

Portland Shambhala is offering this course for only $50 per person (or household), less than half of the original price! If, in these uncertain economic times, the $50 fee is too steep for you, just email [email protected] and let us know what you can afford.

Zoom details will be provided to registrants.
