Webinar Description

In this class, the participants will write, reflect, meditate and engage in discussions about what it means to free ourselves from fragmentation and to find ourselves whole again. Fragmentation of the self has unintended consequences. Often, the consequences are depression, anxiety and blocked creativity. At the root of depression, anxiety and blocked creativity there is fear. Fear of losing what we know, fear of the unknown. Fear comes from attachment to particular outcomes. 

This class is informed by the Buddhist way of living and seeing the world. We’ll focus on the four Noble Truths: 1) There is suffering in life. 2) The cause of suffering is craving. 3) There is an end to suffering when we stop craving. 4) There is a path which leads away from craving and suffering. We’ll also discuss the four “immeasurables:” Love, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy and Equanimity.

This class would benefit individuals who are on the path of self-discovery as well as those who facilitate self-discovery to others. Therapists are ideal candidates. The material is designed for individuals who are curious about how to integrate the multiple parts of their lives into a cohesive wholeness. Individuals who are interested in having a regular integral practice in their lives, that is a practice that includes living with integrity and excellence, becoming more alive and creative, mindful movement, sitting meditation, walks in nature and willingness to grapple with important questions about the meaning of life. Lastly, this class is for individuals interested in creating more psychological flexibility, so they can embrace life with curiosity, detachment and depth.
