We make decisions every day—from seemingly inconsequential choices, to larger ones that can affect the course of our life. How can the Dharma guide our choices to lead towards well-being and contentment?
In this day retreat, we’ll explore a range of concrete, practical tools for making decisions that incorporate meditation, reflection, intuition, and inquiry. You’ll learn how to navigate the choices in your life with more confidence, clarity and ease, as well as how to find more balance with the results of the decisions you make. Our day will include periods of silent meditation, movement, writing, and interactive exercises.
This program will be video and audio recorded for an online audience. By attending, you consent to being videotaped and included in the program recording.
Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public. Clinician will learn several conceptual frameworks to understand the decision-making process; how to identify and strengthen key mental qualities that support making decisions; as well as guided practices to share with clients for making clear decisions. Continuing Education (CE) credit available. See below for attendance requirements and more information.
