Compassion in Everyday Life: A Mindfulness Meditation Workshop
With David Nichtern
Location: Sag Harbor
Level: Open (all students welcome)
We are excited to welcome back David Nichtern as he explores compassion training in our meditation practice and everyday living. It’s a timely workshop when, in the spirit of the holidays, we strive to have a little more love and compassion! David will address:
- Personal / Intimate Relationships – For some of us, this could be our greatest challenge – that person closest to us – how to find the dharma in the swirling mists of love and marriage.
- Family – How can these people, who look so much like us and bring out our deepest feelings of love and connection, be so completely annoying? It’s a mystery, right? We can learn so much about ourselves by studying our own family’s reality TV show?
- Work – For many of us, we will spend more time at work in our lives than anywhere else, including with our spouse, our family, even sleeping and eating! Bringing wisdom and compassion into our workplace is profound and important.
- Community & Society– A decent human society in which trust in our basic goodness is the foundation – is this a pipe dream or a real possibility?
Workshop Includes meditation instruction and practice, lecture and discussion.
