Working Skillfully with Emotions
December 16 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm PST
Half Day With Scott Tusa
Life doesn’t always go the way we want. Rather than checking out when difficulties arise, meditation offers us an opportunity to look towards in order to find true contentment. Contentment does not come from ignoring suffering, but rather happens when we are able to meet and be curious about our fuller human experience. Eventually the kindness and space we can provide towards our own suffering becomes the kindness and compassion we can express towards others. In this workshop, and through periods of meditation, experiential learning, and discussion, we will explore how to meet our difficult emotions with more awareness, compassion, and ease.
COST: Sliding Scale: $25 – $60, plus an offering of DANA to the teacher. Please pay at the highest level you can afford to support our programs and pay it forward for those who have less.
Scholarships and work-study are available. No is turned away for lack of funds.
