Daylong: Awakened Heart
- 5:00 PM at River Road Unitarian, (6301 River Road, Bethesda, MD, 20817) (Map It)
This event is full; we are not accepting names on the already very long waiting list.
The Buddha described the core of our suffering as not remembering who we really are. We leave home when we live in limiting stories that cover over our natural wisdom and loving heart. This workshop explores the teachings and practices that help us release fear based beliefs and reconnect with our full aliveness, awareness and compassion. The day includes talks, guided meditations and time for questions and sharing.
IMCW Retreats and Workshops
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.
