Letting Go with Wisdom

Coming in June:

Letting Go with Wisdom

In June, the Tuesday evening Wicker Park class will explore the topic "Letting Go with Wisdom."


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.
