Online Only: We are now offering this program online only, via Livestream, so you may join us remotely. Once registered, you will receive instructions and a Livestream link. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we navigate the unfolding of the Coronavirus situation. We are continuing to respond by evolving our practices and policies to keep everyone safe and supported, while still serving as a place of refuge and honoring our community’s commitment to the Dharma and sangha.


Description:
The Pali word for “faith,” saddha, is often also translated as “to place the heart upon.” In this day together, we’ll explore different aspects of faith as a beautiful spiritual superpower, engaging with heart qualities such as courage and trust. In these challenging times, we so need to be able to stand upon a reliable foundation from which to engage with the world from our most responsive, wise, and open heart. By understanding and connecting more deeply to what sustains us, what truly matters to us, we can begin to live our lives as an act of faith.


Please note, CE Credits are no longer available for this program. If you paid for CE credits you may receive an open credit for a future program, or donate the CE credit fee portion. Please email us at eventsregistrar@spiritrock.org.
