We are living in uncertain times; the pandemic, social unrest, and polarization that may be affecting us physically, mentally and emotionally. This workshop will explore how we can learn to keep our heads and hearts above the waters in the midst of it all. Within the teachings of the Dhamma we can learn to develop the qualities of the mind and heart to meet the uncertainties of life with a wise and compassionate heart. In this workshop, there will be time to listen to a Dhamma talk, practice meditation, and have small and large group discussion.
We may be asking ourselves:
- How am I adjusting to the reality that things are not going back to “normal”?
- How am I dealing with all the contradictory information?
- How am I dealing with ongoing separation from people I love?
- And recently – the shocking news of George Floyd’s murder that has ignited protests and rioting in a number of major cities in the USA. This is the most recent incidence of so many acts of violence within POC and other marginalized communities. This points out so sadly and clearly that racism, prejudice, and bigotry continue to deeply exist.
- These acts of violence and the consequential protests, riots, along with the uncertainties of the pandemic are shaking us to the bones.
- Where is this country and world heading?
- How do I meet my fears in a wise way? Is there room for hope?
We look forward to being with you in this exploration and practice of learning how to ride the waves of change with an open and wise and compassionate heart in the midst of it all…
