Energize and deepen your practice with a small group of dedicated practitioners. Over the course of eight weekly sessions, we'll focus on meditation - why we practice, what brings us back, how we practice and what we're learning. During this 2-month Intensive, we'll give particular attention to practices that support our resilience as we navigate these very challenging times.
This Insight Meditation intensive is designed for those with established meditation practices. Each two-hour session will include 2 meditations and time to talk with each other. It’s a special opportunity for those wishing to deepen their connection to Sangha, our spiritual community of friends, and to the teachings of awareness, compassion and wisdom.Begins:Apr 9th, 2020
Everything changes, continually.
Life is inherently challenging, for everyone.
Actions have consequences, big and small.
All of us, no matter who we are, experience the pleasure and pain of success and failure, gain and loss, illness, aging, and death. When difficulty happens we tend to think something is wrong, we push it away we want it to end. When things are going well, we think this is how it's supposed to be, we hold on forgetting that it, too, will once again change.Begins:May 20th, 2020
