Learn from the transformative teachings and practices at the heart of Buddhist Psychology. Discover inner capacities for wakefulness, joy, dignity and compassion--your Buddha-nature.
Join us for this day of mindful meditations and teachings on love, consciousness, healing and the nature of mind. Our training will study the fundamental principles of Buddhist psychology combining practical examples, teaching stories, visionary wisdom and case studies. We will explore applications of these revolutionary perspectives in our healing work, our meditation and our life.
Teachings are appropriate for individuals as well as health care professionals. Continuing Education (CE) credit available for in-person attendance.
CARPOOLING is always requested, and due to the large number of folks coming to this event, cars with less than 3 people will be asked to pay a $10 non-carpooling fee. Bring more if you can! Spirit Rock only charges this fee for events that will be very full as we pledged to help keep traffic down on Sir Francis Drake Blvd. and we have limited onsite parking. You can find other people on our carpooling forum at our Online Bulletin Board For Ride Sharing. Folks who can OFFER a ride are usually needed.
