During challenging times there is a tendency is to become tight and to experience situations as solid. From this perspective, it is so easy to become discouraged and lose heart. Within the Shambhala teachings the remedy to losing heart is Windhorse, the limitless energy of basic goodness. We rouse this life force energy through meditation practices and engaging wholeheartedly in all the activities of life.
This program is an opportunity to come together to explore some of the Shambhala teachings on Windhorse and the relevance of these teachings for this time. There will be meditation instruction and practice, teaching and opportunity for discussion.
Beginner and experienced meditators of all levels are invited to participate.
A zoom link will be sent upon registration
