Living Authentically
Lama Marut
Sunday, May 5, 2019 and Sunday, May 12, 2019
7pm-8:30pm

Most people would agree that living “authentically” is the key to a happy, contented life. But how do we actually do it? What it means to be “true to oneself” is not at all obvious and the specifics of how to actually live a life of integrity can be perplexing.

In this two-part workshop with Lama Marut, we’ll examine the question of how to live authentically from a spiritual point of view.

Jesus is My Buddha
Lacey Melguizo
Wednesdays, March 27, 2019 / April 3, 2019 / April 10, 2019 / April 17, 2019
9am-10am

Join Lacey for this very special journey during the season of Lent.

Lent is a retreat: a break amid the usual routines of our lives, over the forty-day period from Ash Wednesday until Easter. According to the Torah, on the Sabbath you can pick up an apple that naturally falls from a tree onto the ground, but you can’t pick it from the tree. Mindful Christian meditative prayer practice is very similar. In it, we take time to see things as they are, without interfering with them or trying to fix or change them. Once we know what is, we can then think and act wisely on what ought to be.

Enlightenment is a mental and physical state that is possible for everyone in this lifetime. There are a set of practices and steps you must take to get there. It is about as easy as becoming good at playing piano! Ready to play?

How Will You Live This One Precious Life?
Karuna
Thursdays, March 21 – May 9, 2019
8:45 – 9:45 am CT

In this second module of The Source of All My Good, we are stepping squarely into the next two verses: how to live knowing we will die, understanding the seemingly random circumstances and events we call life, and discovering what can really help along the journey – namely, taking refuge. “How Will You Live This One Life?” will also continue our in-depth exploration of shamatha meditation and its importance as we find ourselves incorporating visualizations into our practice. We’ll also reflect on the first two verses of the Source of All My Good, so participation in Module One is not necessary!

Five Wisdom Energies: An Exploration of the Five Buddha Families
Kelly Lindsey
Tuesdays, April 9 – May 14, 2019
9am-10:15am CT

In this six-week Buddhist meditation series, we will be exploring teachings on the Five Buddha Families, also known as the Five Wisdom Energies.

These teachings come from the Kalachakra Tantra, a rich and powerful practice in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The Kalachakra Tantra represents the Enlightened mandala of our inner and outer worlds and the connection between. Each of us express a unique mixture of energy through our attitudes, emotions, decisions, and actions. Although we often think of the world and our bodies in terms of our physical existence, it is underlying energy that makes the vibrant aspect of our being…the quality, texture, and feeling of our actual experience.

Rediscover Peace Through Deep Meditative Restoration
Kim Humphrey
First Saturday of the Month, Next Up April 6, 2019
9:00 – 10:00 am CT

Kim offers this deep restorative iRest® class every first Saturday of the month.

Integrative Restoration Meditation (iRest®) is a guided meditation that will ask you to rest back (seated or lying down) and open your senses to the present moment. As we experience present moment sensations, the mind and body are lulled into a deep state of relaxation that is similar to sleep. This practice offers much needed rest and restoration for anyone dealing with lack of sleep and stress. And, ultimately in this practice, we’re learning to remain aware and present in deep states of relaxation so we can meet and respond to all of life from this place of relaxed ease.

Tuesdays, Sep 3 – Oct 15, 2019
8:00 – 9:15pm CT

This 7-week series is perfect for anyone interested in learning more about their own emotions and gaining a useful set of tools to manage, even overcome, the tricky ones. Really great for parents and teachers!

The Cultivating Emotional Balance Training emerged from the Destructive Emotions dialogue between behavioral scientists and the Dalai Lama, Buddhist monks, and scholars at the Mind and Life Institute in Dharamsala, India, in March of 2000. At the culmination of this meeting the Dalai Lama requested that the important ideas raised in these sessions, specifically how to manage the everyday obstacles of our destructive emotions, be turned into an accessible secular training.
