Reciprocity and the Web of Life: Practices for Recovering Attention

10 CE Credits. As the earth calls our attention and old narratives dissolve around us, we are asked to navigate our lives differently. At an evolutionary threshold like this, the Dharma is a formidable anchor to keep us grounded. By working with ancient and new ways of experiencing embodied existence, we are consciously re-rooting in the web of life, bringing about an expanded perception of who we are and thereby opening us into our next steps on the path.

Mindfulness for Everyone

8 CE Credits. Mindfulness offers us tools to develop our capacity to pay attention, regulate emotions, and cultivate states of lovingkindness, compassion, and even-mindedness. Mindfulness can be practiced in a variety of ways—from focused attention to wide open, spacious, natural awareness. Over time, one can access states of profound well-being in both silent meditation and everyday life. Rooted in the Buddhist practice of mindfulness, this retreat focuses on practical applications of mindfulness and is open to people of all experience levels and backgrounds.

Transforming the Judgmental Mind

6 CE Credits. Judgments of a reactive and compulsive nature can have a strong impact on our lives. They can distort our perceptions, make relationships difficult, and undermine our work. Together we will examine what judgments are and how to work with them, using mindfulness, “heart” practices, and inquiry. These explorations will help us to preserve the discernment often found in judgments, while working through their destructive aspects. Attendees will have the option of regular follow-up sessions to continue and deepen the learning.

Befriending Mortality: Living An Awakened Life Through Mindfulness of Death

18 CE Credits. We all “know” we will die, yet we tend to ignore it and put our collective heads in the sand. Rather than running away from our inevitable mortality, we can harness its power to stay aligned with our deepest values and to live and love more fully. Fully embracing life’s impermanence can engender a deep freedom and letting go. Through mindfulness of death (maraṇasati), we become more present for this miraculous, passing show called life with gladness and gratitude.
