Event description

Description

Course with Manny Mansbach

5 Tuesdays, May 15 - June 12, 2018; 7:00 - 8:45pm**

“Now and then it’s good to pause in your pursuit of happiness, and just be happy.” --Guillaume Apollinaire

Insight Meditation is primarily taught as a path of gradual progression of insight, and certainly a steady, dedicated, long-term practice points towards a life of clarity and compassion. This class will focus on how we can also learn to find confidence in stepping out of delusion and clinging right here and now in the midst of our complex and demanding lives? Instead of making practice another self-improvement project with all the pitfalls that come with such endeavors, we are invited to attune to the “one who knows”, to practice recognizing and releasing from obstacles and history, learning to trust the expansive and liberated heart, connecting with freedom where we stand or sit without conditions, perfection or delay.

The text for the class will be Jack Kornfield’s No Time Like the Present: Finding Freedom, Love and Joy Right Where You Are. Audio dharma talks will also be assigned each week.

Suggested contribution: $40-60 registration + teacher donation*


*Our teachers give freely of their time, wisdom, and experience and depend upon contributions from students for their livelihood. We recommend an equal or greater donation to the teacher than for registration.

**Formerly May 22 - June 19. Note: this is a slight date change from what is in the printed brochure.
