Character: Meditations on Emotional Maturity

At the Vail Athletic Club.

In honor of the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., join Karen for an exploration of character, or ethical integrity.  We have all had the experience of being derailed by powerful emotions, and losing our ability to act toward what we value.  This workshop will explore the wisdom teachings of emotional maturity, sharing tools to develop character through skillful navigation of emotional experience.  All are welcome.

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

Meditations on Time & Being

Meditations on Time & Being

At the Vail Athletic Club.

Our lives are organized around being in time.  While this is necessary for practical purposes, it also causes stress and disconnection when we minimize our current experience to accommodate the pressure of time.  But what is time?  What is all the yogic hype about the present moment actually referring to?  And what would be the implications of living now?

This workshop is for all levels, no experience is required.

Radical Acceptance: Meditations on Things as they Are

At MindSpace

$20 suggested donation.

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 meditation workshop is for all levels.

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

Rich Silence

A FREE meditation event at the Avon Public Library.

Join Karen for a journey into peace.  So many of us think we can’t meditate because our mind is busy.  But silence is the nature of our awareness, and permeates our experience, regardless of our thoughts, feelings, sensations and perceptions. This experiential exploration of silence is for all levels, no experience necessary. 

"The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between." - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Fascia’s piezo-electric property (pressure-electricity), means that compressing fascia activates a healing response in the body.  Using harder rubber balls– or softer tennis balls– in commonly congested areas (called trigger points) helps restore fluid movement, while calming the mind.  You will leave feeling rejuvenated.

Meditations on Self-love

A FREE event at the Eagle Public Library.

Self-contempt is a prevalent and damaging thought pattern, making it difficult for us to act kindly and live fully. In this all levels meditation workshop, we will discuss and practice various methods of healing our relationship with ourselves.  Until we can feel self-kindness, self-compassion and self-forgiveness, we will be closed off to the richness that life offers.
