About the Teaching
Our habitual reactions to change and uncertainty are traditionally summarized in the presentation of the Eight Worldly Concerns: pleasure and pain, material gain and loss, praise and blame, having others’ good opinions (fame) and bad opinions (disrepute). These four pairs of experiences preoccupy the attention of most of us in the world, stirring up our attachment and aversion, and creating upheavals in our moods. How to find a deep sense of peace and joy in response to all these changes is the subject of this workshop.
This workshop features several sessions of guided meditations with explanations and time for Q&A or discussion.
All are welcome; no prerequisite needed.
