Strengthen Your Spiritual Care through Engaging the Three Gates of Awakening: Body, Speech and Mind with Reverend Susan Shannon

Our spiritual care relates to our quality of presence. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the Three Gates of Body, Speech, and Mind are our means of expressing the consciousness we interact with the world through. Susan will unpack the conventional and ultimate meaning in a way that will focus on enhancing our ability to serve others in a sustainable way. Intentionally engaging these Three Gates in everything we do, think, and say in the world bolsters us from the pitfalls of spiritual bypass and burnout. In doing so we align our being with that which is greater than us – the energy of the Divine, Creator, our Buddha Nature. 

Susan will lead a guided meditation, talk about pacing the breath practice with a patient, share powerful stories of her work at San Quentin State Prison and Death Row, and provide practices to create sacred presence.
