Dharma Wisdom Seattle Sangha – Fall Session with Meg Agnew
Sep 15, 2017| $84
The intention of this program is to encourage a deepening of our meditation practice and, within the refuge of sangha (spiritual community), to share insights and support for living with wisdom and compassion. We’ll begin each of our 12 meetings with a half-hour of meditation followed by an investigation of The Trauma of Everyday Life by Mark Epstein, MD.
In this illuminating work on the human condition, the author uses his decades long experience as a psychiatrist and spiritual practitioner to interpret the Buddha’s teaching on suffering in the light of the current understanding of human development.
Mark Epstein draws on his own experience as a meditator, therapist, and Buddhist to guide us into a clearer view of how suffering can be our greatest teacher and even a means to profound freedom.
[su_quote cite=”Daniel Goleman”]The Trauma of Everyday Life reads like a gripping mystery, one told by your warm and reassuring, but utterly candid analyst. What’s true for the Buddha, Epstein explains, applies to us all.[/su_quote]
In keeping with the tradition of Theravadan Buddhism, the teachings will be freely offered. Participants are encouraged to make a donation (dana) of any amount for the instruction. To pay for the costs of using the studio and its resources, a registration fee of $84 is requested. (Scholarships are available.)
