Cynthia Trone talks at the Dancing Elephant Nov. 1.

Rockland — Cynthia Trone will give a dharma talk entitled “Poetics of the Wild” at Rockland Shambhala, 16 School St. Thursday, Nov. 1, from 6 to 8 p.m.. The program is part of the First Thursday Dharma Talk Series, and is free to the public, with donations accepted. Tea and refreshments will be served.

In the evening gathering, Trone will share how Buddhist teachings reveal universal truths that may help us understand the potential of human nature, even in light of the disastrous effects of human behavior on the planet. Drawing on the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, through both ancient and modern poetry and literature, Trone shares a realistic and gentle view of individual responsibility and compassionate action. There will be time for meditation, contemplation and discussion.

Trone earned a master’s degree in mindfulness studies from Lesley University in 2017. She traveled to Tibet in 2016 to better understand the oppression and culture of Tibetan Buddhism, and in 2017, she attended the Dalai Lama’s Kalachakra teachings in Bodhgaya, India. Trone currently develops and manages youth programs at Georges River Land Trust’s Langlais Sculpture Preserve in Cushing, and teaches nature-based mindfulness in the Leaps of Imagination program in local public schools.
