"Be kind to yourself as you proceed along this journey. This kindness, in itself, is a means of awakening the spark of love within you and helping others to discover that spark within themselves." - Tsoknyi Rinpoche
“We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness.” - Thich Nhat Hahn
There are many ways to approach the practice of meditation. On the Buddhist path meditation is a tool to uncover the true peace of our own inner awakened nature.
Rather than a “self-help” technique or a limited transactional method, Buddhist meditation aims to cultivate a relational awareness. One where the development of our own inner peace connects into a responsibility and altruism towards others.
Through a combination of experiential learning and meditation, this half-day workshop will explore the intersections of core Buddhist principles and our everyday lives, where integrative meditation practices meet the world around us.
Learning to connect with the root of meditative awareness
Understanding the limitations of “self-help” meditation
Working with “overactive judgment” and distinguishing between reacting and responding
Connecting meditative awareness into our relationships and the world around us
Learning how to connect meditative awareness into compassionate action
