Event description

Description

A meditation workshop to pause and reassess the business and meaning of our lives. As a wholesome state of mind, compassion is essential to individual well-being. As an ethical orientation, compassion is also essential for sustaining rich nourishing relationships. As a social force, it is crucial for addressing global, socio-economic dilemmas. Not only has cultivating compassion been found to reduce the frequency and intensity of destructive emotions (such as anger and hatred), it is also a sustainable response to the suffering of others, and actually alleviates empathetic distress and burnout. We will engage in guided meditation, group exercises and discussions to seek ways to let our empathy arise without feeling overwhelmed. No previous meditation experience is required.

The workshop is 3 hours long, with a break for dinner. Snacks and beverages will be provided. Please consider bringing a writing pad or a journal, and wear comfortable clothes. We begin with a few minutes of movement and we will do a few yoga stretches. There will be chairs to sit on, and also bolsters and cushions to sit on the floor. Suggested reading: “True Refuge: Finding Peace and Freedom in your Own Awakened Heart” by Tara Brach. We will explore some mindfulness concepts described in the book, so not a requirement just a suggestion. And do not hesitate to email Cory or Maya if you have any questions. Please extend this invitation, friends and family welcome!
