Please join Nalanda Institute, Wonderstruck, and Tibet House in welcoming Tatsudo Nicole Baden Roshi on January 13, 2024 at Tibet House (22 West 15th Street) for a dharma talk and meditation on the foundational Buddhist principle of Śūnyatā.

Sunyata (emptiness, boundarylessness, source-mind) means to know the truth of change, impermanence, and interconnectedness. It is the key to transformational mindfulness and the open door to meditation.

Buddhist Practice shows us that views and intentions precede and shape perception. We don’t live in reality, but in “experiality”, meaning our experience thereof. Experiencing emptiness, thus, cannot just open our minds, but our worlds. 

In this talk, Tatsudo Nicole Baden Roshi will share a practice-approach to the teaching of Śūnyatā/emptiness. We will explore how to open our minds into the experience—and how to let the experience open us. 

We will begin the evening with a 15 minute meditation, followed by Baden Roshi’s talk. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity for questions.

This event is suited for anyone interested in the practice and experience of mindfulness and meditation.
