How do we know when it’s most skillful to focus on ourselves? When do we know that it’s time to shift the lion’s share of our focus to others? Is there a best way to focus on both the benefit of self and the benefit of others at once? Join Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche for a public talk on maximizing the benefits of our altruistic intentions.

Conducted by: Casey Beauchamp and guided by Mitra Lee Worley (from afar)
About Casey Beauchamp: Casey earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Performance and Traditional Eastern Arts with a concentration in Yoga Teacher Training and a Master of Arts in Contemplative Education from Naropa University. During his time at Naropa Casey was blessed with the opportunity to study Mudra Space Awareness and Maitri Space Awareness in depth over a seven year period.
Casey first encountered Mudra Space Awareness during an acting class taught by Mitra Lee Worley who founded the original Theatre Studies program at Naropa University. While at Naropa Casey assisted Mitra Lee in the Mudra Space Awareness course and lead a Mudra Space Awareness student group.
Casey currently works as a yoga and dance instructor and continues to explore and teach a contemplative Hip Hop dance curriculum which he developed while studying at Naropa. He is extremely humbled and honored to have this opportunity to share his experience of Mudra and contemplative performance training here at Nalandhabodhi New York.
