Dharma Dialogues — Becoming Refuge: Reflections on Embodiment, Relationship and Dharma in Troubled Times (Online)

10:00 – 11:30 am ET

We live in challenging times. How do we meet these times of change, loss and disruption with grace, curiosity and courage? What does refuge look like now, as the safe harbors we have relied on in the past shift? Join Kaira Jewel Lingo, author of We Were Made for These Times, and Willa Blythe Baker in a Dharma Dialogue about embracing uncertainty, embodying resilience and becoming refuge in a changing world.

Dharma Dialogues is a series (going into its fifth year at Natural Dharma Fellowship) of intimate informal exchanges between Lama Willa, Lama Liz and extraordinary pioneering teachers and spiritual leaders throughout the world. Participants have remarked on this series as an invitation to experience “dharma” in a new way: not as a doctrinal teaching, but as a spontaneous offering arising through the vehicle of relationship. The series is designed to allow our audience to peek behind the curtain to glimpse how a variety of extraordinary human teachers and leaders are accessing wisdom and navigating uncertainty in these challenging times. Past Dharma Dialogue guests have included Lama Rod Owens, Lama Tenzin Palmo, Dr. Stephanie Kaza, Pema Khandro Rinpoche, Dr. Anne Klein, Kaira Jewel Lingo, Dr. Cheryl Giles and many others. 

Dharma Dialogue sessions begin with spontaneous reflections between our host and a special guest(s). After a break, the audience is invited into the dialogue to interact with the guest and host. We conclude with a practice chosen by and guided by our special guest to complement the theme of the dialogue.

This year-long Dharma Dialogue series will be held online one Sunday each month in 2024.
