Event Details

Date: Sunday, November 3, 2019; 10:00am – 4:30pm.
Sliding Scale: $75 – 200. Code JB2D19.

The mind can cloud be clouded with our personal aspirations, in our effort to support others, or in doubt disguised as wisdom. External influences can raise questions. Who am I to do that? What if I fail? What if people don’t approve?”

In this day together, we’ll explore how Dharma teachings can help us see through the perception of our small sense of self to align with a truth that is beyond our personal ego, fears, and doubts. In doing so, we can cultivate the courage to overcome these obstacles, and allow ourselves to be used as a force for good while inspiring others to do the same.

The day will include periods of guided and walking meditation, discussion, written and interactive reflections, and Q&A.
