Awakening to Joy

How do we cultivate and embody joy in everyday life — especially in the face of adversity? How can our collective challenges, pain, grief, and struggles be opportunities to remember the interconnection at the heart of joy? How do meditation and mindfulness help us to reconnect with the vibrant aliveness that comes from surrendering rather than resisting, emptying rather than filling, and resting rather than striving.

Join us for an honest, compassionate, and illuminating exploration of joy from the inside out. The evening will include a guided meditation, talk, and Q & A. All experience levels are welcome.

Canceled March 24th: From Suffering to Peace: The True Promise of Mindfulness, by Mark Coleman.

April 21st, 6:30 – 7:30 pm: Relational Mindfulness: A Handbook for Deepening Our Connections with Ourselves, Each Other, and the Planet, by Deborah Eden Tull. Formal mindfulness practice, sometimes called “meditation,” helps us to connect with our internal experiences and to strengthen our awareness and presence for daily living. Informal practice– bringing awareness to the rest of our lives– is the challenge. While our relationships with family, friends, acquaintances, and colleagues bring many gifts, they also can be the source of suffering. Learn tips on how to bring relational mindfulness to your day. Facilitator, Ann Friedman, Ph.D.

May 14, 6:30 – 7:30 pm: Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone, by Brene Brown. Social scientist D. Brown has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives – experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In this book, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong at a time when we need it most. This allows us the opportunity to discover and discuss what it means to truly belong to ourselves lovingly with compassion. Facilitator Tonya Vetter
