IT MAY BE A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD ~ BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE!
HOW TO STAY CALM IN A CRAZY WORLD
Saturday Nov 11
9:30 - 2:00
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:
- Rise above the fray—the craziness of the world / life.
- Keep your wits and head about you even when everyone else around you seems to be losing theirs.
- 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!
