Thu, Jan 25 - Thu, Mar 22Dedicated Meditator Group - Embracing Change, 3034760726
Eight-week dedicated practitioner group led by Peter Williams, Thursdays, 6:30 - 8:30 pm, Jan. 25th - March 22nd, 2018, in Boulder. Many of our difficulties come from some kind of change, such as getting injured or struggling with a family issue, so coming to terms with it is crucial. Buddhist meditation practice teaches us not just how to tolerate change, but how to use it as a profound ally on the spiritual path. As meditation reveals the moment-to-moment impermanence in all things - in our bodies, minds and lives - we naturally learn to let go. And letting go allows us to abide with ease and joy in the present moment. In essence, when we are unconscious change leads to suffering; when we are conscious it leads to real happiness. We will explore meditation and the theme of change in a dedicated group of the same participants each week. Meetings will consist of meditation, instruction, a dharma talk and group interaction. I ask participants to please attend regularly. All of this creates a strong container for dharma exploration and spiritual community. Suggested donation: $145. This is a guideline. Depending on your finances, you may need to give less or want to give more. I appreciate whatever you are able to contribute. To apply: Go to my website. Learn More...
