Foundations of Western Dharma Practice:
Zen and the Gateway of Emotion

Saturday March 30 from 1:30-5:30 PM

Feelings and relationships are complicated! 

This afternoon workshop will present a basic understanding of common emotional patterns, while offering ways of working skillfully with these dynamics in the midst of dharma practice, on the mat and in the world. Such awareness is especially valuable as our meditation deepens and the whole psyche becomes increasingly activated. Understanding how to work effectively with what we often discover are hidden feelings and defenses gives us the power to begin transforming them into significant opportunities — gateways that lead to deeper dharma practice and a more authentic, open-hearted way of life.
