Courses

Currently online only

Courses tend to be multiple weeks with “homework” between meetings. Scope and sequence will be personalized to particular audience and topics can vary widely. Below are just examples.

  • Compassion Cultivation Training– This 8 week course (2-hour class) brings one through a 6 step meditation process to deepen and strengthen one’s capacity to be compassionate. It provides depth and breadth beyond any single workshop.
  • Engaged Mindfulness Meditation Group – This 8 week series (45 minutes – 1.5 hours, depends on group) that helps build or strengthen one’s mindfulness practice, introducing compassion cultivation practices.
  • Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation – 4 week course, meets 1 hour/week or a day-long workshop (6 hours to include breaks & mindful movement)
    • Sample Description: What if, when faced with difficulty and stress, we could meet life with steadiness and respond from a place of presence and compassion? Mindfulness practice is the deliberate act of paying attention to the present moment without expectations or judgment. It cultivates a deeper awareness of our inner landscape so that we have more choice in how we relate and respond to our experiences. Being present with things just as they are, even when it is unpleasant, can lessen stress and anxiety, improve relationships, and increase resiliency, joy and gratitude to name a few benefits.
  • Compassion for Others – Cultivating Common Humanity in These Challenging Times
    • Sample Description: Compassion is an action arising from our natural inclination to care for and connect with others. It requires us to turn toward suffering. With the demands of our daily lives, this action can feel overwhelming, so our tendency is to pull or look away. Yet, as Sharon Salzberg writes, “In order to do anything about the suffering of the world we must have the strength to face it without turning away.” Through meditation and dyadic exercises, this workshop will provide the space for you to begin exploring what compassion is and is not, how it arises within, and ways to strengthen your capacity to turn towards others. Cultivating compassion deepens our connection with others and the world, gifting us with the beauty of our common humanity.
