Often we fear the unknown of change. But it is possible transform our doubts and fear into courage and ease. This daylong program will provide you with effective skills to reframe and navigate the emotional trauma of major life changes and transitions with a sense of equanimity and purpose.

Drawing from both classical Buddhist practices and Non-Buddhist techniques from a variety of sources, the Daylong is designed to lower Dukkha and inspire courage and confidence for change. If you are facing a major life transition: career changes, graduation, relationship endings and beginnings, illness, children leaving the nest, going back to school, retiring, aging, the full catastrophe… this course is for YOU!

Meditation practioners of all levels are welcome.
