Life never stands still. Soon after we arrange certain conditions in life our feelings start to change. But could we learn how to abide with more balance and poise in this constantly changing world? Yes, we can. And there are three essential things that we can do - access our wisdom, connect with our kindness and cultivate the inner strength of self-confidence. Through relating to these parts of ourself, in meditation, we can become more calm and self-assured no matter what life throws at us. This workshop will include teaching and meditation.
Note: This event will be delivered in-person and online via a Zoom webinar. Our new location is 2298 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge, just a few blocks from the Davis Square T stop.
