The contemplative path teaches us to open to the full range of joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain that are part of every human life. Yet it still can be hard to accept the inevitable disappointments, hurts and losses of life. Join author and meditation teacher Oren Jay Sofer for an online day of meditation and healing as we explore what it means to let go and let be.
How can we practice true acceptance and release the heart from struggle and resentment over the past? How do we honor the power of our feelings without feeding them, and discern indifference from true acceptance? Is there a difference between acceptance and forgiveness? Let’s explore these questions together.
This program is appropriate for beginners and advanced meditators alike, and will include periods of silent meditation and reflection, interactive discussion, and Dharma talks as well as time for question and response. Everyone is welcome, no prior experience necessary.
Full and partial scholarships are available.
