Everyone is welcome no matter what your profession, age, or background. Classes are recorded and you will receive a link to the recordings for your personal use only. Each week, there will be a short lecture followed by experiential practices and large or small-group discussions. Weekly handouts will provide inspirational readings and the instructions you need to continue your experiential learning at home. An online chat room gives you the optional ability to meet and dialog with your fellow students. Don't be surprised if they live all over the world!
So many people today are lonely, frustrated, and out of balance. Whether the cause is personal, financial, political, social or something else, the result is the same: bodies are full of stress; speech is often harsh and reactive; and thoughts are confused—dull and sluggish one moment, excitable and out of control the next. If this sounds familiar, please know that there is a way to transform your way of thinking and feeling; there is a way to become inspired and live a meaningful life. See current Life, Reimagined courses below.
This course contains an introduction to calmness meditation, the basis for insight into experience. All of us experience periods in which we seem to lose control, almost as if external events require us to respond in various ways. Calmness meditation is a key life skill here, allowing more control and flexibility in our range of responses. This is the subject of the first set of eight half hour classes, entitled ‘Welcome to a calm place’, in which a set of simple three minute daily exercises introduce the state of calm. The second term, ‘making the world’, uses the state of calm as a platform to directly experience how we construct experience, revealing patterns we have learnt from background and education.
