    The Focusing Method, Embodied Wisdom: Our Inner Guide

    This evening is an introduction to Focusing as a body-based awareness method. Focusing guides us to our felt-sense inner wisdom, which we all possess, to remove obstacles and challenges to living a more vibrant and enriching life. This evening we will learn tools to guide and support us in our everyday lives.

    Rose Sposito is a certified practitioner and teacher of Embodied Wisdom: Our Felt Sense, Our Inner Knowing. She is a longtime practitioner of Spirit Oriental Medicine.

    Compassionate Abiding: A Practice to Help When Emotions Flare Up

    In the Shambhala tradition, strong emotions are not something to push away or be ashamed of. Rather, they hold wisdom that we can use on our path of personal discovery. But how is that possible? With the help of a practice developed by Acharyas Dale Asrael and Pema Chodron, based on a text by Shantideva, we will explore how to hold your seat amidst these intense emotions.
