Cultivating sanity in times of uncertainty and change
with Dale Asrael
February 2 / 8:30 AM - February 3 / 4:00 PM
Join us as the Tibetan year of the Earth Dog comes to a close and the year of the Earth Pig commences....a perfect time to retreat, listen to wisdom teachings, engage with fellow meditators, reflect on the year just past and your aspirations for 2019.
Take some time to explore with senior visiting Shambhala teacher Acharya Dale Asrael how to cultivate sanity in these times of uncertainty and change.
We all experience pain, uncertainty and loss. Many of us are also experiencing despair and alarm for the future of our world. Everything we experience in our lives changes yet we long for stability and clarity which sometimes leads to feelings of being overwhelmed or helpless.
Intense emotions such as anger, jealousy and fear can either trap us in struggles or open us to a direct experience of awakening. Even the most painful emotions offer an opportunity to develop genuine compassion but they can be challenging to work with.
This weekend explores core beliefs that perpetuate emotional confusion. We will also be introduced to meditation practices that help foster clarity and insight, provide a window into the pure energy that is the essence of emotion. A path toward sanity in times of uncertainty.
