We know that complaining doesn’t positively impact a situation, and in fact, sometimes complaining makes the situation worse! Even so, from time to time, complaining seems like the ONLY recourse we have to manage a difficult situation.


During this workshop, we will explore Buddha’s teachings and wisdom and learn how to transform challenging situations into opportunities where we can actually positively benefit ourselves and others. 


No experience needed. Suitable for both beginners as well as advanced meditators. Everyone welcome!

Everything changes. Nothing lasts. Even though we know this is true, we often resist change and struggle with uncertainty. When we learn to embrace the truth of impermanence we can let go of worry, accept our experiences, keep things in perspective and develop a flexible mind. In this way we can live lightly and wisely through unpredictable times.

 

This workshop will include teachings and meditations that will help us to deepen our acceptance, our meditation experience and our wisdom understanding the transient nature of our lives. In the space of one day we can begin to experience a deep inner peace, stability and wisdom that we can bring into each moment of our lives. 

 

No experience needed. Suitable for both beginners as well as advanced meditators. Everyone welcome!

10 – 11 am  Part 1 (teaching & guided meditations)

"WHEN THE TURBULENCE OF DISTRACTING THOUGHTS SUBSIDES AND OUR MIND BECOMES STILL, A DEEP HAPPINESS AND CONTENTMENT NATURALLY ARISE
FROM WITHIN."
