Our Role as Spiritual Practitioners in a World in Crisis

May 21 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm PDT

One only has to read the news for a few minutes, to feel that the level of multiple crises in the world is greater than it has been in recent history. As spiritual practitioners, what is our role in this world in crisis? How can we engage with physical reality without shutting down and lose hope (delusion), resorting to anger / judgement / fear (aversion), or just staying “head down” in our lives and trying to get more for ourselves to feel safe (desire)? It is Tina’s (and many teachers’) belief that those of us who are actively working to disengage from our defilements and cultivate opening to our deeper nature, are offsetting the seeming regression of consciousness in the broader world today. By holding our deeper Ground and overcoming the overwhelm, it is possible for us to positively effect the collective consciousness of Being. Join Tina in this discussion of our role in helping humanity-and ourselves–through this difficult time.

About The Teacher

Tina Rasmussen Profile Picture

Tina Rasmussen is a meditation teacher who leads retreats and offers spiritual guidance and mentoring to practitioners worldwide. Her mission as a teacher is to foster awakening and its embodiment in worldly life, through the application of authentic, rigorous Buddhist and modern practices.

Tina learned to meditate in 1976, at age 13. In 2003, after many years of practice in Buddhist and modern non-dual traditions, she undertook an intensive year-long solo retreat during which a profound awakening to Reality occurred. In 2005, Tina attended a retreat with Burmese meditation master Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw, who ordained her as a Buddhist nun. During the retreat, Tina became the first Western woman to complete the entire Samatha path in this lineage. Tina was authorized to teach by Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw of Burma. Tina also took refuge with Tsoknyi Rinpoche, a Tibetan Dzogchen teacher, and was initiated into the Nyingma lineage.
