Bringing Balance to Life
August 29, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Tuesday, repeating until November 28, 2017
About this Class:
In this weekly class we will be exploring the various benefits that can be gained by practicing basic contemplative techniques drawn from the advanced mind sciences of ancient India. From within a secular context, we will learn how to cultivate four aspects of our experience
1) Conative—working with constructive desires
2) Attentional—cultivating stable and clear focus
3) Cognitive—cultivating greater awareness
4) Emotional—nurturing our connections with others
The class is open to anyone with an interest in experiencing greater wellbeing in their lives. Each session is self-contained so feel free to drop-in whenever you can.
To help us cover the costs of running these classes, we are asking for a suggested donation of $15.
