WE ARE THE WORLD

our thoughts, words & actions matter

8 week online course

start Tues 3/9, 19:00-20:45

All of us just want to be happy and free, no? And to live a fulfilling life, one in which we feel we are of use. 

Why is there so much suffering in the world? And why do we suffer so much? We worry about the future, about not getting what we want, and about getting what we don't want. We worry about what other people think about us, and we compare ourselves with the whole world and always come out short.

When we get what we want, we want something else.

 

Why is this? And how can we change it?

 

This was what the Buddha set out to figure out around 2500 years ago, and what he discovered, when he became The Buddha (the one that's awake) under the Banyan tree, was pretty damn compelling. 

He figured out a way to get rid of, or at least reduce dukkha (a few translations: unsatisfactoriness, suffering, bummer), this way, this path is known as The Noble Eightfold Path, and this is the subject for this course. 

 

I believe that this path works, and that working with the principles here might be needed now, more than ever.

What I'd like to offer a participatory and non-dogmatic exploration of these teachings, and how they can positively impact our lives.

The structure of this course is as follows, we'll begin with about 30 minutes of somatic flow, which aims to regulate the nervous system. Then we'll meditate for about 20 minutes. After that we will be discussing the various practices of the eightfold path, and how they can help us live a wiser more peaceful life. We'll finish the sessions with a few minutes of guided journaling.

There's no need to be or become 'a Buddhist' -- the way I understand these teachings, they aren't religious, the Buddha was not a god, and neither did he claim to know who created the universe. 

WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE:

* 30 min of SOMATIC FLOW each week, designed around nervous system regulation

* 20-30 min of guided meditation

* A discussion of one of the foundational teachings in Buddha Dharma​​
