Wisdom in Everyday Life (Berkeley)

November 16 / 10:00 AM - November 30 / 4:00 PM

This program takes place in Berekley.

Meditation uncovers our wisdom.
Meditation sharpens our intelligence and uncovers our wisdom. Participants will receive practical instructions for discovering trust and magic, even in the midst of challenge. No longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, we can include everything as part of the path. The challenges of daily life become opportunities for both contemplative practice and social and ecological action.

The Courses
The courses are weekly, interactive, communal, and create a learning environment where the teachings are intimate and relevant. We train in meditation, and use inquiry, dialogue, and contemplative arts throughout the classes.

Contentment in Everyday Life
