Does it seem like the world is going crazy? In the world of meditation, we have time-tested and proven methods that keep us from going crazy too. We call them: Skillful Means.

Skillful Means is the widely accepted translation of the Sanskrit term, Upaya. The great meditation traditions of Buddhism and Yoga both include teachings on Upaya / Skillful Means, but with very different content. In this workshop I will draw from the teachings of both traditions and show you how you can use this ancient wisdom in your contemporary world and in your meditation.  

In very simple modern-speak you could say Skillful Means is knowing how to:

  1. Rise above the fray—the craziness of the world / life.
  2. Keep your wits and head about you even when everyone else around you seems to be losing theirs.
  3. Become part of the solution instead of part of the problem.

If these extraordinary times are getting to you, these ancient teachings will help you remain sane in a crazy, turbulent world

I hope you can join me!

Suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators.

SPRING RETREAT: BEGIN. AGAIN.

SPRING RETREAT: BEGIN. AGAIN.

Begin. Again.” It's such a simple phrase. Deceptively so. This simple concept contains levels and layers of wisdom we need as meditators to:

  • Cultivate the stable foundation for our daily practice both on and off the cushion. 
  • Experience equanimity. 
  • Master the practice of Meditation as a LIfestyle and an Art.

All are ESSENTIAL, in my experience, to evolving from beginning to advanced meditator.
