Everyday Dharma

Five Weeks with Susan Kaiser Greenland

Tuesdays Starting March 1, 2016

7:30-9:00pm

Santa Monica

 

Meditation develops a wiser and more compassionate worldview, in addition to being a practice. More often than not, this requires a shift in perspective, and shifting perspectives tends to be a long and bumpy process. The first half of each drop-in class will be silent practice, and the second half of each class will explore how one element from everyday life – a newspaper article, a poem, a book, a song, or Los Angeles traffic – whatever shows up that day –can support us in this process.  Come join Susan for this month of teachings.

This class is drop in and offered on a dana-basis only; no registration is required. All levels of practitioner are welcome.
