Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche escaped the Chinese occupation of Tibet in 1959, making his way on foot to India and eventually to England, where he studied at Oxford. He arrived in the United States in 1970 and traveled the country, adapting the profound Buddhist teachings of his ancient lineage to the time and culture of 1970s America.
Trungpa’s sometimes outrageous actions and often unpredictable behavior challenged Western assumptions and fantasies about eastern spirituality and Buddhist teachings.
A poet, scholar, artist, and dharma teacher, Trungpa founded Naropa Institute in Colorado, leaving an indelible imprint on the development of Buddhism and non-dual spirituality in Western culture.
Living Earth hosts Movie Night on the 3rd Friday each month. We’ll have tea and noshes – maybe chai and popcorn – and a chance to connect and watch a movie. Feel free to bring a treat to share (just munchies and “finger food,” not needing utensils and dishes). Donations at the door are much appreciated.
Our Movie Nights present films that speak to who we are as human beings, that inquire into what it means to be alive, to explore awareness, and to engage in our lives as expressions of conscious awakening.
