And Now What?

with Lani Miller

Wednesdays, February 27th, March 6th, 13th, 20th, 2019 | 7:00pm – 9:00pm

How do we bring practice into our everyday life in order to deepen our awareness, moment to moment, and cultivate a more integrated daily relationship with the Dharma? And Now What? is a four-week course intended for those who have completed an introductory course in Insight or Mindfulness meditation, or equivalent, and is suitable for more experienced practitioners who wish to spend some time focusing on and deepening their practice. We will look at how practice “on the cushion” and in our daily life both work together to make our spiritual journey a lived experience.

Participants will practice listening deeply and developing trust in their own natural awareness. This includes learning about aspects of the Buddha’s teachings that can be used to support their practice. Areas of exploration include the setting of intentions, the Brahma Viharas (Energies of the Heart), The Ten Paramis (or Perfections) and the Seven Factors of Enlightenment. These qualities can be explored as tools to deepen our awareness and increase harmony and wisdom in our lives and our practice.

There will be ample time for sharing, discussion and interaction in each class.
