Full day workshop will explore various Buddhist accounts of the mind and conscious experience, both theoretically and experientially, and will involve both discussion and meditation. Our explorations will be organized around insights from all 3 &ldquo;turnings&rdquo; of Buddhist teachings. From the first turning, we&rsquo;ll examine the key Buddhist notion of the selflessness of mind and experience. From the second turning, we&rsquo;ll examine the emptiness of mind. And from the third turning, we&rsquo;ll examine the luminosity of mind. Morning and afternoon sessions, with break 11:30-1:00 for lunch.</p> CC Women's Basketball Tue, 20 Nov 2012 14:38:53 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-02-09-cc-women-s-basketball https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-02-09-cc-women-s-basketball <p><em>Saturday, February 9, 2013 6:00 PM</em></p><p>vs. Centenary</p> Senior Vocal Recital Thu, 17 Jan 2013 16:06:18 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-02-09-senior-vocal-recital https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-02-09-senior-vocal-recital <p><em>Saturday, February 9, 2013 7:30 PM</em></p><p>Colin Busby, baritone, Class of 2012,<strong><em> </em></strong>will perform a variety of vocal selections.</p> CC Men's Basketball Tue, 20 Nov 2012 14:31:00 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-02-09-cc-men-s-basketball https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-02-09-cc-men-s-basketball <p><em>Saturday, February 9, 2013 8:00 PM</em></p><p>vs. Centenary</p> Visiting Artist Concert: The Sphere Ensemble with Benjamin Cantu Thu, 17 Jan 2013 16:05:39 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-02-10-visiting-artist-concert-the-sphere-ensemble-with-benjamin-cantu https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-02-10-visiting-artist-concert-the-sphere-ensemble-with-benjamin-cantu <p><em>Sunday, February 10, 2013 3:00 PM</em></p><p>The Sphere Ensemble was formed in 2011 by professional string players who wanted to explore new directions in string ensemble playing.

In "The Responsible Company," Chouinard and Stanley recount how the company and its culture gained the confidence, by step and misstep, to make its work progressively more responsible, and to ultimately share its discoveries with companies as large as Wal-Mart or as small as the corner bakery.</p>
