Congratulations to the winners of two scholarships who will receive this weekend’s Emotional Rescue training with Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche at Nalanda West.
Nalanda West is pleased to have been able to donate these two Emotional Rescue scholarships through Compassionate Action Network (CAN), who selected Clara Koch and Lara Gandara-Flynn to receive the program scholarships.
As part of the selection process, applicants shared what they planned to do with information learned in the Emotional Rescue training.
A Teacher Faces Difficult Emotions
One of the scholarship recipients is Lara Gandara-Flynn, a 25-year veteran teacher in the Everett community. Ms. Gandara-Flynn recently lost a young student in a gang-related incident. She said that she often struggles to remain compassionate with students when their anger at extreme poverty and gang violence spills into their lives at school and sometimes even ends up aimed at her. She looks forward to learning the Emotional Rescue 3-step Plan to help herself and her students navigate this challenging emotional landscape.
We have appreciated working together with Compassionate Action Network to help offer a positive way forward for the two deserving recipients of these Emotional Rescue scholarships. A few tickets are still available for this weekend’s program with Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. Register here.
