[Live Streamed] Dharma Wisdom Seattle: Friday Morning Sangha with Meg Agnew
Apr 17, 2020| $70
7-Week Live Streamed Series
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 7 online meetings with a half-hour of meditation followed by an investigation of Happiness is an Inside Job by Sylvia Boorstein, Ph.D.
In this Buddhist classic, the author illuminates what she sees as the heart of the Buddha’s Eight Fold Path—Wise Effort, Wise Mindfulness and Wise Concentration—through a lens of great discernment, compassion and the wisdom of experience. In Boorstein’s own words, “This is a book about restoring the mind to its natural wisdom and kindness, to its capacity for caring connection, whenever confusion overwhelms it into suffering.”
“This book will convince you that your own happiness really is much more available to you than you may have thought.” ~Jon Kabat-Zinn

A series allows your teacher to teach progressively and to tailor the class, theme or goal as they get to know each individual over time. Staying with one group for several weeks also builds commitment, community, and understanding for both the student and the teacher. Research shows that we learn better, feel discomfort less, and are more optimistic when we feel included in community. Our series classes build that kind of inclusion.
Please plan carefully: Refunds of 90% are granted up to 5 days prior to the series start; after which, no refunds are given.
