Trusting Life, Releasing into Love (Workshop) | May 17, 2014

We are deeply conditioned to attempt to control life. We are habituated to try to manage others and ourselves. Our striving never leads to peace, however, and we are often left feeling isolated, overwhelmed, depressed. With Awareness Practice we learn to trust life. In doing so, we are freed from our perceived need to effort our way through existence. Our experience of interconnection deepens, and we learn to recognize the love that’s here when we stop doing everything else. Join us as we delve more deeply into this topic and practice trusting life, together.

No experience required. All are welcome.

Awakening to the New Year 2015: A Silent Retreat at Still Meadow | Dec 30, 2014 - Jan 3, 2015

Zen has an old adage that states: “How you end one year is how you will spend the next.” This five-day retreat will be an opportunity to bring in the New Year consciously. We will reflect on what didn’t serve us in 2014, what we are ready to let go of, and, with the support of other practitioners, focus on intentions for 2015 that reflect our deepest heart’s desire. We will turn our attention to stillness and renewal. We will rest in spaciousness by practicing presence.

No experience required. All are welcome.

Registration details TBA.

Mindfulness and Making Workshop | Apr 5, 2015 - Apr 11, 2015

Our class focus will be the discovery of authentic personal entry points into the creative process. Together we will explore mindful participation with creativity and with life at large as we release the temptation toward control and “end-gain.”  We will employ crafts – including paste-paper, journal-making, clay work among other forms – as a vehicle for the practice of presence and receptivity and for experiencing our interconnectedness.  We will also explore meditation, developing personal strategies for bringing mindful practices into your life moving forward, and the role of service in the craft arts.  Questions such as “What does it mean to be a vehicle for creative life force while being an object maker?” and “How can our creative processes assist us in being more awake in the world?” will be addressed as well.
