[Live Streamed] Seattle Dharma Wisdom: Fall Sangha with Meg Agnew – Fall Session
Sep 18, 2020| $95
12-Week Live Stream Series with Meg Agnew
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 Radical Compassion by Tara Brach.
In this powerful book, a beloved meditation teacher illuminates and updates a mindfulness tool that has been helping people work with difficult emotions since the 1990s. With wisdom garnered through her own life challenges and decades of counseling others, she has added the critical component of self-compassion to create a comprehensive means for uncovering wisdom and fostering self-care and acceptance in the midst of turbulent times.
Fridays, 8:00-9:15 am
September 18 – December 4

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.
