2019-02-21 Restlessness and Worry 55:23
Kate Munding
Restlessness and Worry: what lies at the heart of this anxious hinderance. We'll explore how this classical hinderance destabilizes us and how to reclaim steadiness in our heart and mind. I'll introduce this theme in our guided meditation too so there will be an experiential component to the exploration. It should be a grounding and enjoyable evening.

2019-03-21 Humility and Confidence 59:19
James Baraz
The Buddhist writer Wei Wu Wei says: "True humility is the absence of anyone to be proud." We are often humbled by life. How we handle it can either lead to defeat or profound growth. We will explore how being humbled can deepen our capacity to open to all of our experience and strengthen our confidence and trust as we align ourselves with something greater than ourself.
