Coming Home to Ourselves: Exploring the Ease of Being

Life can feel frenzied and full. No matter what we accomplish, there’s always more to do and more to think about. And we can feel constant pressure to become better.

Even with meditation, we can feel a subtle, or not-so-subtle, striving to get somewhere with it, or to do it more often, differently or better.

In this live, online interactive 4-week series with Shari, we will take a break from doing, thinking and becoming to explore and deeply rest in our home ground of Being and unconditional presence.

Tuesday at 7:00 pm (CT) for 4 weeks, starting February 20, 2018

Introduction to Circling: Relational Meditation

"The practice of Circling encourages you to draw your own conclusions, while continuously allowing them to be re-drawn. The Five Principles can be lights on this path to presence with each other."

We will discuss each Principle in overview, practice an activity together to taste the embodiment, and then have space for further connecting. This is meant to be simply a taste… consider it akin to the aromas on a scratchN’sniff sticker… you’ll get a sense of things… and perhaps wet your pallet of interest to experience more.
