Wendy Block, Senior Teacher Peggy Mulder Kersulis

Wendy Block, Senior Teacher and Peggy Mulder Kersulis

10/17/2018 7:00 PM 8:30 PM (6 weeks)  at  Sacred Roots Healing Center, Long Beach, (2841 E Broadway, Long Beach, CA, 90803) (Map It)

Please join teachers Peggy Kersulis, MFT and Wendy Block, LCSW for a 6-week class on the teachings of the Heavenly Messengers.

In this class, we will explore the themes of how we live our life fully, knowing that our lives will include uncertainty, aging, sickness and death.

How can we use the Buddhist teachings to “wake up” to what matters most? 

How do we prepare for these experiences?

Buddhist teacher Frank Ostaseski advises us that “Reflections on impermanence and death helps us to be more responsible in our relationships, with ourselves with the planet and with our time.” He advises that death is not waiting for us at the end of a long road. Death is always with us, in the marrow of every passing moment, a secret teacher hiding in plain sight, helping us to discover what matters most in life.

The class is designed to help contemplate what matters most in our lives. 

This course includes Dharma teachings, experiential exercises that include daily life practical issues, discussions, meditation and other practices.

The class is open to practitioners of all levels.

NOTE:  There will be no class Oct 31 and Nov 21.

Location: Sacred Roots, 2841 East Broadway, Long Beach, 90803
