Through our meditation practice, we come down to earth as embodied human beings, basing our spirituality in expanding our capacity to meet the fullness of life with spaciousness and kindness. In this journey, we meet both resistance and increased capacity to touch the truth of our being at this moment. Together we will explore how to engage with resistance and how to cultivate the authenticity that melts the hardness in our hearts and embraces connection.
This workshop is appropriate for both new and experienced meditators and will include meditation instructions, sitting and walking practice, a dharma talk and Q&A/discussion. Everyone is welcome.
