Intro to Meditation – 6 session course with Harbor Dharma

Please join us for a 6-session course designed to help you begin or deepen your meditation practice.

Why? Because you may be exhausted by your turbulent emotions dragging you up to highs and down to lows, being led around by the nose by your thoughts. It’s not necessary!! Suffering is optional!

When: 1st & 3rd Tuesdays starts September 17, ends December 3.

Commitment: By attending every session and practicing daily, even if it’s just for 10 minutes, you will insure a successful outcome. You can do this!!

Alida will be using a text called The Relaxed Mindby one of her favorite teachers, Dza Kilung Rinpoche. You can find the text online, and it’s helpful to have it, but not necessary.

The first class begins with our posture – aligning body and mind into a relaxed yet upright and dignified posture. Then, step by step, week by week, we will explore the nature of thoughts and develop the awareness to manage that squirrelly mind!

Having the support of a group is essential to beginning a new habit, as is regular practice. We are limiting it to 10 people so that you have individual guidance and support, yet some good company on this new adventure.

Cost: $75 pre-registration required. Limit 10 people.

Mercury Goes Direct today!

Yay!  We survived the last three weeks of Mercury being retrograde.  Mercury helps to shake up our unhealthy attachments or toxic relationships.  We all have them i.e. money, materialism, draining relationships, social media overload etc so nows the time to let it all go.  What ever Mercury brought out and put in front of you the past three weeks, learn from these lessons so that you don’t repeat them again when Mercury goes retrograde again on Oct. 31!

If not now, when?
