Like gravity, impermanence is one of the indisputable laws of our existence. To deny the reality of gravity can be risky. Instead, we learn to live with it in harmony. Can we do the same with the reality of impermanence?

We think our well-being and security rests in what happens to us...but is this actually true? The saints and sages all speak of another kind of security, one that rests in the way in which we relate to the many changes of our lives. Instead of being victims, constantly alarmed by this inevitable change, we can learn how to ride the waves of change.

Together, we will explore how to navigate change with greater skill and ease, through silent sitting and walking meditation, as well as experiential exercises.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
