The Wisdom of Storytelling: The Power of Story to Awaken Hearts

While we’re encouraged in Buddhist traditions to let go of the stories we tell ourselves, Buddhism has used storytelling to impart the teachings of the Buddha for thousands of years. In this workshop, we’ll practice honoring our life experiences, bringing mindfulness to listening and speaking, and understanding one another more deeply. In exploring techniques for crafting compelling story and narrative, we'll also learn how the process itself helps us develop perspective and supports a sense of shared openness and vulnerability.

Mindfulness with Breathing: Doorway to Wisdom

The breath is precious. From the first inhale at birth to the last exhale at death, the breath is our constant companion, and serves as many peoples’ introduction to meditation practice. As the Ānāpānasti sutta teaches us, it is also the doorway to the depths of Dhamma. This daylong will use the Ānāpānasti sutta as a roadmap to steadying the heart and mind, pointing us to freedom. We will explore this foundational teaching through guided meditations, talks, and Q&A.
