IDEAL FOR: Intermediate
Life is filled with equal parts joy and sorrow. Customarily we are trained to chase the joy and avoid the sorrow – which can be exhausting and ultimately unsustainable. The powerful practices of lovingkindness and equanimity foster within us the capacity to be with life and all of its vicissitudes, gleaning wisdom from both passages of ease and difficulty.
Through formal practice, dialogue, and experiential exercises we will explore deep friendship with ourselves and work to reveal that sacred middle place where both joy and sorrow have a home.

As a first step toward enrollment in the Working with Strong Emotions Course, we conduct a pre-program Orientation Session before the start of Class 1. This Orientation Session is required of all participants before beginning the program. During this session you will have the opportunity to:
Learn more about the course and explore whether it is right for you
Experience, first-hand, mindfulness methods and approaches you will be learning during the program
Meet with your program instructor for a brief, informal conversation about the course
At the conclusion of the orientation, if you and your instructor discern that this course is a good fit for you, the balance of your registration is due. If you choose to withdraw, your full $100 deposit will be refunded.
