Weekend workshop: Karma
One very good way to learn about meditation, or deepen an already-established practice is workshops. Longer retreats, say, a week, are excellent. It can be hard to find the time or money to attend such long retreats, though. Shorter workshops are a good option in this case.
I’m offering a three-day workshop on karma in July.
Thurs July 12 7-8
Friday July 13th 7-9
Saturday July 14th 10am-6pm
We’ll do two main things: learn about karma, and practice mindfulness-awareness meditation. The latter is a meditation practice fundamental to Tibetan Buddhism. Of course, you don’t need to be a Buddhist to try it out.
So what is karma? That’s what we’ll find out. The focus will be on habits and patterns in our lives: what they mean, and how they work. For anyone frustrated with trying to start doing something new, or trying to stop a negative habit, these teachings can be useful. Although “karma” is sometimes used in a way that seems mystical or strange, the approach we’ll take will be more common sense, and down to earth.
Call or email to register. The classes are taught at a yoga/dance studio in Newbury MA. The cost for the three days will be $75. Discounts apply.
