with John Cerullo

Tuesdays, May 4 - June 22

7:30pm - 8:30pm

Why are we in our current situation? Where are we going? Do our lives have any meaning? How should we make use of our lives?

 

How Life Works, Understanding Ourselves, Our World, and What’s Possible is an eight-part series of teachings and meditation practices that bring the Buddha’s wisdom and insight into focus on these questions and many more. Specifically, exploring his Four Noble Truths applied to his Wheel of Life cosmology, which depicts an inner psychological cosmology. It is much like a map of the world or the periodic table of chemical elements, but it is a map of our internal process and its external effects.

 

It vividly describes how we become trapped in a counterproductive maelstrom of suffering and how this process can be reversed.

 

By illuminating the causes behind our situation of limitation and pain, the How Life Works series reveals how, through practicing antidotes to these causes, we can overcome the painful and limiting situations that are their effects. It shows the altruistic purpose that can make life meaningful. The unsettling description of the steps of entrapment (depicted in the Wheel) is a call to action, for it shows how the prison of selfishness can be turned into a source of help and happiness for both oneself and others.

Yoga Nidra - In-Studio & On Zoom

with Tara Temple

ginko%20no%20background5_edited.png

Saturday, June 5

4:00pm - 5:00pm

Yoga Nidra (Divine Sleep) is a guided meditation that will awaken your whole being – the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual layers (called koshas). There is nothing required of you but to lie down and listen as you become aware of each layer without needing to change or fix anything. This is true meditation, where there is nothing to do but to ‘notice’ - supporting you in feeling empowered and whole just as you are. As your journey unfolds, you will become radiant, joyful, and light.

No yoga experience is required and every level of student is welcome. Especially nurturing for those with chronic illness, injury or pain.

**Please note that there are 2 separate registration options, one for "In-Studio" and the other for "On Zoom".

If attending In-Studio, please: click here to fill out our Covid Questionnaire prior to coming to studio, and be sure to bring your own props.

If attending online, Zoom link will be emailed about half an hour prior to the start of the workshop.
