Program Details

Wisdom in Everyday Life


September 29 / 7:00 PM - October 27 / 9:15 PM

Meditation sharpens our intelligence and uncovers our wisdom. When we touch the world directly, we discover ordinary magic. No longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, we can include everything as part of the path and play with whatever arises. The challenges and richness of daily life become opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action.


Prerequisite:  Fearlessness in Everyday Life


 


Our Generosity Policy: We have a generosity policy to make our offerings available to all who wish to participate. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please consider what works for you, and offer as much of the program fee as you can.


For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a "patron price." Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
