White Cloud Sojourns

White Cloud Sojourns Focus Group Aspect for this Workshop For this focus group review, the thought is for you to attend with “beginners mind” and participate during the weekend as a student, saving thoughts and critiques for both the short term review forms and then, allowing yourself time for reflection and either through additional forms, or conversations by phone, letter or email, providing additional feedback for us. Birth our existence, our consciousness, dying, our very last breath: These are heady, intense subjects and even the bravest explorers among us will need time to reflect and contribute. Some of the things we may want to explore with you are: • Is the material helpful and factual (according to your knowledge)? • Was it presented in an understandable, caring way? • Would others, who have never explored these subjects understand? • Was there enough space to integrate what you experienced> • An 18 hour weekend course is intensive, what other formats could be considered? • Inclusion or exclusion of spiritual references in the teachings – more/less? These and other questions will be covered in queries and open end questions in optional course review forms and conversations. “This is samsara. We must try.” Ayang Rinpoche 14 Pratt Rd, Alstead, NH 03602 603-760-8362
