Sunday Morning Wicker Park Class

Reality Check - Introduction to Emptiness

Sundays

11am - 12:15pm

Wicker Park

$12

(free for members)

In October, the Sunday morning Wicker Park class will explore the topic "Reality Check - Introduction to Emptiness."


Of all Buddha’s teachings, none are more profound and transformative than the teachings on emptiness, the true nature of reality. In this series, we'll examine how we normally relate to our self and the world, and discover how the wisdom of emptiness gives us tremendous freedom and limitless possibility. With an understanding of emptiness, we can let go of our painful self and painful world and create space for a better self and world to appear in their place.


Everyone is welcome -- whether you’re brand new to meditation or an experienced practitioner. Each class includes clear and practical instructions, two guided meditations, plus an opportunity to ask questions.

The Peace & Power of Patience

The Peace & Power of Patience

Patience is an inner strength that enables us to accept and grow from whatever life throws at us. By cultivating patient acceptance, we can effectively quell our own anxiety and frustration and improve our relationships with others. In this series of classes, we'll explore Buddhist teachings and meditations on the practice of patience, and learn how to use this powerful mind to improve our daily life.

Everyone is welcome - whether you’re brand new to meditation or an experienced practitioner. Each class includes clear and practical instructions, two guided meditations, plus an opportunity to ask questions.
