Exploring the Yoga of Shard Freedom and Mindful Interaction. The event is also a fundraiser for Alan’s new book and film With Noble Peace Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi and Burma’s Most Revolutionary Voices of Hope and Freedom
Author, activist and Dharma Teacher Alan Clements, was among the first Westerners to ordain as a Buddhist monk in Burma. For nearly a decade he lived in a monastery training in Buddhist psychology and mindfulness meditation under two of the most respected meditation masters off our era. Alan is the author of a number of books, including “Instinct for Freedom”, “A Future To Believe In” and “The Voice of Hope”, co-authored with Aung San Suu Kyi. During this special fee-free gathering Alan will share his recent experiences interviewing over 100 of Burma’s most courageous nonviolent revolutionaries – intellectuals, artists, poets, comedians, writers, nuns and monks – who spent collectively over 500 years behind bars as political prisoners for their peaceful defiant actions to overcome dictatorship. You will learn how these spiritual warriors used the power of mindfulness – the ancient Buddhist practice – to overcome all inner and outer obstacles to evolve the wisdom of “shared freedom” – keeping an open heart even to their oppressors. Please come out to this rare event and support the manifestation of one of the truly great projects of a lifetime and one we dearly love. Attendees can also pre-order copies of the film and book.
