August 17, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Event Date/Time: August 17, 9am – 1pm

Living with Mindfulness


Women’s history in Buddhism is unique. The Buddha was the only teacher of his time to ordain women, allowing them to participate fully in the spiritual community he was forming. This practice day explores the stories of historical women and feminine archetypes in Buddhism. How can women today find empowerment, insight and inspiration in these stories and images?

* At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.
