The Art of Well-Being: The Body Keeps the Score

Well-being is a skill that can be learned and cultivated; no different than learning how to play the violin. The intimate link between well-being and meditation has been carefully studied by Western scientists for decades now, revealing the potent benefits of developing the ability to be present. The traditional, tried-and-true meditation practices, however, fail to engage many modern Americans.

Friday, March 8: The Body Keeps the Score

What does it mean to meditate with the body? So much of our past history, particularly trauma, finds its way into the fibers of our bodies. We will learn about the suffering associated with disembodiment and the multiple benefits of changing our relationships with our physical being through meditation. We will experience the results that derive from developing a profound awareness of the body as opposed to our habitual abiding in our heads with our thoughts. The practices will be drawn from Reginald Ray’s Touching Enlightenment: Finding Realization in the Body.

Date & Time: Friday, March 8, 2019 from 10am to 3pm

Friday, February 8, 2019: Loving Kindness, Compassion, & Generosity

Loving Kindness and Compassion meditation is an ancient practice known for emotional healing, mood enhancement, and overall mental well-being. It facilitates a kinder relationship within ourselves and toward others, increasing our sense of social connection. It transforms how we think, feel, and operate in the world in positive ways beyond the time that we spend practicing it. Free-writing enhances its power and facilitates the integration of these benefits between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Learn this life-changing practice and how it can transform your relationships, mood, and outlook on life.

Friday, Jan. 11, 2019: Contemplative Meditation and Personal Transformation

Contemplative practices can be described as directing a train of thought about something, and quietly reflecting on a concept, biblical passage, or cultivating a quality of mind like empathy or compassion. It can also be used to integrate qualities that we wish to establish within our relationships, like loving kindness and compassion or the development of gratitude or generosity toward others.

This differs from the concentration-based meditation practices that rest attention on one thing in particular. It also differs from insight practices that aspire to observe what is happening, as it is happening in our awareness, without focusing on anything in particular. It can be beneficial to learn how to combine contemplative practice with moments of resting, but using either insight or single focus techniques.
