Love: Supported by the Four Divine States **
4 (non-sequential) Mondays: January 26 and February 2, 9 & 23**
7:30 – 9pm
at 308 Page Street, SFZC Conference Center
We all want love. And, having and holding love and loving feelings may be challenging at times; perhaps, especially when we’re in the midst of a relationship.
Join us in exploring how love can be when expressed in conjunction with the qualities of the Four Divine States:
Inclusive Joy &
Balance of Heart/Mind
Let’s explore how these qualities can offer us ways which can promote more mindfulness and ease. Traditional meditation practices on these qualities along with other contemporary means will be shared and practiced; giving us tools and practices to learn how to access and cultivate these qualities within ourselves and with another.
Both individual and relational exercises will be used.
The format will be a bit different than usual:
20 minutes of teachings
20 interactive group or partnered exercise
20 large group discussion / Q&A
10 practice suggestions & dedication of merit
Open to all expressions of partnered relationships, including but not limited to: friendships, parent/child, siblings, intimate sensual/sexual significant others, roommates, etc.
Suggested dana/donation range: $60-80/person
