This Monday, we slow things down and explore how relaxing our awareness and valuing simplicity can change our experience of meditation. Then for part two, we explore a simple and powerful way of creating and sustaining happiness: the gratitude letter.
This 2.5 hour afternoon workshop at the Harmony Hotel in Nosara, Costa Rica, will be a relaxed and practical distillation of what meditators have been learning for 2,500 years. The workshop will focus on practice, on the exploration and common-sense application of four key meditative skills – simplicity, clarity, equanimity and compassion – and how they can be mixed and matched to create the right customized practice.
The world is crazy. Meditation is sanity. The intention of this weekend training is to empower everyone – including people not remotely interested in becoming a “teacher” – to think about and care for their own mental health and the mental health of others. Learning to guide meditation practice is an excellent way to do both. As we get clearer about the practice of guiding a meditation, our own practice deepens immeasurably.
