We can all feel stuck in a rut at times, feeling we lack energy, purpose and direction to our days and lives. Sometimes we can feel like we’re just getting by, as opposed to truly flourishing and deeply enjoying our lives.
In this meditation workshop with Gen Khedrub we will explore how we can all learn to cultivate the right inner and outer conditions to support a genuinely healthy and consistently happy life, and in this way feel we are flourishing in our days and lives.
We will learn how combining this with an understanding of, and living more and more in alignment with, the law of karma, we will gradually feel in control of the destiny of our lives. In this way, we will naturally find a new found sense of purpose and direction to our days and lives, confident in the knowledge that one day at a time, we are creating the peaceful, happy, meaningful and beneficial life we have always longed for.
Please Note: Immediately following the workshop, we will host a potluck starting around 12:30pm. Feel free to bring a vegetarian dish to share if you wish. Everyone is welcome!
Location: This event will be offered in-person at the Portland New Church, 302 Stevens Ave. in Portland Maine.
