RADICAL ACCEPTANCE

meditations on things as they are

Sometimes we approach our spiritual practice- and our life- as a self-improvement project.  This may sound like a good idea, but the felt experience is of endless conflict.

Instead, great teachers urge us to begin where we are: to accept our current situation as it is.  This may seem like condoning our own shortcomings and the problems of the world.  But in practice, the turning toward our experience with kindness and compassion opens us to the possibility of transformation.

This workshop is for all levels.

“On the sacred path of Radical Acceptance, rather than striving for perfection, we discover how to love ourselves into wholeness.” -Tara Brach

CHARACTER

Meditations on emotional maturity

We have all had the experience of being derailed by powerful emotions, and losing our ability to act toward what we value.

This all-levels workshop explores the wisdom teachings of emotional maturity, sharing tools to develop character through skillful navigation of emotional experience.

“Character- the willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life- is the source from which self-respect springs.”  -Joan Didion

INTEGRITY

meditations on ethics, karma and the way of the bodhisattva

Join Karen for meditations on living in alignment with our deepest values.  We will explore the ethics of non-harming, the theory of karma, and orienting ourselves toward what we love.  The reward is not only a meaningful life, but also utter lack of inner conflict.

This workshop is for all levels.
