This program will be hosted both in-person and online (hybrid). This is the registration page to join Oren J. Sofer in person at our Center in Cambridge. (Register here if you prefer to attend online.)
In-person space is limited, so please register in advance. Masks will be optional.
We each have the potential to live fulfilling lives, meet the immense challenges of our times, and contribute meaningfully to our world. Join author and Dharma teacher Oren Jay Sofer for this special Sunday afternoon session at CIMC. Oren will offer teachings and practices from his new book, Your Heart Was Made For This: Contemplative Practices to Meet a World in Crisis with Courage, Integrity, and Love, a pragmatic guide to living a life of meaning and purpose in a time of great social, environmental, and spiritual upheaval.
We will focus on cultivating two potent, complimentary qualities essential to the spiritual path and social transformation: patience and resolve. What does it mean to be patient in the face of overwhelming threats like climate disruption and oppression? How can we draw on the power of resolve without becoming rigid or striving?
This program is appropriate for both new and experienced meditators. Everyone is welcome. Our time together will include time for reflection, discussion, silent practice, and questions, and will be followed by a book-signing with Oren starting at 3:30 pm for those who join us in person at CIMC.
Note: For those in person there will be a book-signing with Oren from 3:30-4:00.
