We seem to be entering further and further into a dark age, a time when there is less sacred outlook, and little support for maintaining our sanity and compassion. How can we create the conditions for responding to our lives with flexibility, clarity, warmth, and skill?

Join Liz Monson as we explore how to live in the fullness and beauty of our lives while remaining in direct contact with the suffering (our own and others) we see unfolding daily. By discovering our innate pliancy and resilience, we recognize that true liberation is only possible when we lean into the truth of things as they are. Learn how to dance both with the ebbs and flows of our natural and ever-present wakefulness as well as with the challenges and difficulties of everyday life.

Friday, August 21st: 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM
