9:30 am - 4 pm
with Keiryu Liên Shutt
Buddha Hall at 300 Page Street
Are you at a point in your life in which you feel like it's time for a change, but you're not sure how to proceed?
Change can be hard. Especially a change that we haven't chosen at this time, such as job or relationship loss. Or perhaps this is a life-transition time. Maybe as you think of all the many possible ways to go, you begin to feel confused: "Shall I do what I've always wanted to do, or stay with what I know?" "Is it time to go toward my 'heart's desire' or is it time to get more training?"
At times like these, teachings both from Zen Buddhism and from the motivational field can help us. Join me for a day-long workshop in which we will explore how to incorporate both meditative practices and behavior-change skills in order to:
- Find stability and centeredness so that you can be truly present and aware.
- Use tools to help you evaluate what you’re feeling "called" to do at this time in your life.
- Learn what may be keeping you from achieving.
- Discover tools to help you set and achieve goals.
Meditation and Buddhist practices along with evaluative and skill-building tools will be practiced in small and large groups. Plan for a day in which you will be engaged from the heart and with mindfulness.
The time for change has come into your life. Come see how you can learn to meet this with ease, grace and skill, and go towards the life that is waiting to be created by you!
