Living with Resilience: How to Become Gentle and Tough (facilitated by Jan Snyder)

Shambhala Gainesville Director Jan Snyder will facilitate this pre-recorded Shambhala Online course at the center on three Saturdays:  March 2, March 23 and April 13.

On each Saturday there will be a morning session from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm, and an afternoon session from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm.  In each session, participants will view a pre-recorded talk and a guided meditation by Fleet Maull followed by small group discussions.   There is a lunch break between sessions.

Participants will also receive a list of suggested readings for each segment, as well as several questions to contemplate (and/or journal) in the weeks between the scheduled class sessions.

About the course

Meeting the demands of modern life in an increasingly complex world has been challenging for some time. Currently, however, we are beginning to experience a phenomenon called hyper-complexity driven by technology, overpopulation and a looming climate emergency, which could greatly destabilize our already fragile and unsustainable systems.

Rampant materialism, consumerism and individualism are not only creating an existential, environmental threat, but they are also tearing the very fabric of society and provoking dangerous levels of political divisiveness and economic disruption.  How are we to survive much less thrive in these uncertain times?

In this course, we will explore strategies for increasing our reservoirs of resilience through a deeply embodied approach to mindfulness-awareness practices and mindful presence in daily living by actualizing our innate capacity for interoceptive awareness.

No prerequisites.  Everyone welcome.
