Ditching Distractions

Saturday June 8 | 10a – 12p

With Kadampa Teacher  Kitty Connolly

If you often struggle with distraction in your meditation- and who doesn’t!- this workshop is for you. Everyone can improve the quality of their meditation. Understanding the benefits of being in control of our mind will help us develop the motivation to practice regularly, at our own level. Then we can learn to cultivate mindfulness not only in meditation, but throughout our day. Join us for this deep dive into ditching distraction for good!

Everyone is welcome!

The Art of Saying No

Saturday June 22,  2024 | 10a – 1p

With Resident Teacher Gerry Donovan

How to Say No – with kindness. In the course of daily life, it can be difficult to set limits on the many requests that we receive. Yet, if we simply say yes all the time, we can find ourselves stuck in a joyless mode of unfulfilling activity. In this half-day workshop, we’ll use  Buddha’s teaching to help us understand that sometimes the best way to cherish others is to say no.

No experience is necessary for this introductory class. Everyone is welcome!
