Refund and Event Policies

In this 4-week series, based on the renowned Awakening Joy class created by James Baraz, we’ll be discovering all the wholesome, natural and tangible joys, always available in the present moment, even in challenging holiday times where many personalities come together. It is often said that Buddhist practitioners are “joy seekers,” learning that these joys are always here for our enjoyment – just waiting to be discovered in the here and now. Because these “everyday” joys can only be known and enjoyed in the present moment, we’ll spend time cultivating mindful embodied presence, literally coming to our senses as a path for joy. Also, because discovering joy depends on the quality of mind and heart, we’ll be cultivating wholesome heart qualities as the foundation for true joy.

Every week, we’ll dive together into qualities and practices that allow for joy as a natural way of life, such as gratitude, connection, self-compassion, kindness, generosity, as well as mining the “silver linings” often hiding in plain sight when times are hard. Each class will involve guided meditation, instruction, sharing and inclusive community-building, tailored to these uncertain times. The time for joy is now!
