Pema Sakyong ShambhalaBravery is the guiding force behind our December Tricycle Retreat, “Being Brave: Transforming Our World.” This retreat is led by the head of the Shambhala lineage, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and the most popular Western-born Buddhist teacher of them all, Ani Pema Chödrön. Tricycle Retreats are available to Supporting and Sustaining Members of the Tricycle Community, but we have a special offer this month for all Tricycle Community Members: an exclusive DVD, also called Being Brave: Transforming Our World. This DVD contains six hours of teachings from Pema Chödrön and the Sakyong and will only be available on for the month of Decembe. Starting Monday, December 5th, get yours here!

Generosity was our theme in November and you can still download our free e-book, Tricycle Teachings: On Generosity when you join the Tricycle Community. Generosity is a fundamental Buddhist practice and one we should all keep at the front of our minds this holiday season, when many are in pain and need, behind all the media mania and glitz and commercial greed.
