Buddha Now: Find Freedom through Creativity and your Career
September 8, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - September 10, 2016 @ 5:30 pm
Join Doug Duncan Sensei in Calgary for an enlightening three part series, ‘Buddha Now’. In these two classes and one meditation session we will discover tools for finding heart and meaning through both career and creativity.
Thursday Sept 8th, 7 – 8:30pm – Awakening through Career
In this enlivening discussion, Doug Duncan Sensei will describe how we can leverage our careers and professional lives to find a richer, more free way of life.
Learn how to develop and use the focus, drive and energy required for your livelihood to liberate stuck mental and emotional patterning. Create the groundwork for illumined states of consciousness and become an even more powerful professional.
Friday Sept 9th, 7 – 8:30pm – Awakening through Creativity
Creativity arises naturally in states of stillness and presence. From this place of clear seeing, inspiration springs forth. In this fast-paced and demanding world however, the long list of daily needs and preoccupations makes this creative state elusive.
Join Doug Duncan Sensei as he shares his approach to accessing creativity. Learn how a deeply creative lifestyle can move you beyond limiting views and connect you with your unlimited creative Buddha Nature.
Saturday September 10th 4 – 5:30pm – Meditations on Awakening through Career and Creativity.
Join us for this practice session where we learn and develop the tools we need to show up in our lives and work MindFully. Give your inner creative warrior the fuel it needs to shine through regardless of the financial, physical, emotional or mental obstacles you might face.
About The Teacher
Achariya Doug Duncan has been teaching the Buddhist path to awakening for over three decades. In 2005, Duncan founded Clear Sky Meditation Center in Cranbrook, BC. He continues to travel around the world leading retreats and classes with his partner and co-teacher Catherine Pawasarat.
Known for his direct and compassionate engagement with students, Doug embraces the full spectrum of the various traditions he employs in order to mentor beings to a more awakened state. His great sense of humour, caring attitude and sometimes very direct involvement makes him an effective catalyst for opening the shadow, for very practical application of the teachings, for humorous and gentle relief when tensions mount and through a diverse range of explorations expands the teachings to include all aspects of life.
