With a focus on interactive discussion, community building and current events, Sylvia and Heidi will share practical, accessible tools to respond to, practice in, and live in these uncharted times with mindfulness, presence, and an open heart. (Re)connect and be nurtured by the support of like-minded sangha, shared stories, and meaningful moments. Join us as we explore how to bring our practice more fully into everyday life and out into the world!

This iteration will be interactive discussion-based, led by facilitating teacher Heidi Bourne, and will include Dharma talks, discussion and reflection, guided meditation, and Q&A.

Course material (included): 11 video-based teachings with Sylvia on how to make your day-to-day experience a basis for mindfulness practice. Filmed at her home, Sylvia offers reflections, teachings, and instructions for everyday experiences such as drinking coffee, driving, preparing food and even walking your dog.

With easy, accessible instructions based on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness as well as Lovingkindness (Metta) practice, this class offers an opportunity to take your practice off of the cushion and into the world.
