Living from Being - Half-day for Women

Rashmi Nair-Ripley Online via Zoom

Rashmi Nair-Ripley

7/18/2020 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM  at  Online via Zoom (.) (Map It)

We all have glimpses of Being, yet it may happen in a fleeting instant, at the end of a lot of "doing," a lot of scurrying around physically, mentally, and emotionally.

What are the obstacles to living from Being, to living from Presence? What are the ideas, beliefs, and positions that get in the way of an easeful, effortless life? How do these "locks" show up in the body?

Is it possible to feel at ease in our lives, to not feel overwhelmed by the everyday demands on our time and attention? Yes it is. It was this way once for each of us, but we have forgotten.

In the company of other courageous women, on this anniversary of the 100th year of women's suffrage we will explore through the practice of Presence, LIVING from BEING, so we can clearly see the obstacles to experiencing and embodying our deepest nature.

IMCW aspires to create a safe, supportive community. We welcome everyone with an interest in meditation, regardless of identity, orientation or background. 

This class will be held online from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with a short break for snack in between.

What is Dana?

IMCW retreats and workshops offer instruction in Buddhist meditation and talks on the awakening of our natural insight, love and wisdom. While the meditation practices derive from the Buddhist tradition, they are universal in orientation and address spiritual themes of concern to all contemplative traditions.

A workshop is not primarily silent (talking may be allowed during breaks and lunch) and may be focused on a special topic, such as applying meditation to relationships, emotional healing or physical well-being. Workshops may include a variety of formats, including different reflections and exercises and the sharing of experiences.

Fees:

Base fee:$35.00
Mid-level (base + $10 donation):$45.00
Sponsor (base + $20 donation):$55.00
