Deepen Your Meditation Practice with Narayan Liebenson
Join us for a two-session exploration with Narayan Helen Liebenson
Are your spiritual practices and actions aligned with your intentions? The Buddha encouraged three wise intentions – kindness, compassion, and letting go – and discouraged their opposites – ill will, cruelty, and clinging. We all might say that we aspire to what is wise, but do we embody our understanding? In the challenging times in which we live, a growing awareness of our intentions is now more essential than ever. Spiritual practices that are aligned with what we most aspire to have the potential to heal fragmentation and conflict, allowing struggle to ease into a more joyful and spacious existence.
Session 1: Wise Intention – 7pm Thursday, April 27 at Newton South High School, 140 Brandeis Rd, Newton. ($25 in advance, $30 cash or check at the door)
We will investigate wise and unwise intention, taking a look at ways we can encourage kindness, compassion, and letting go while allowing ill, control, and grasping to dissolve in the light of awareness. Understanding how we are (and are not) aligned with our intentions in our daily lives, can bring us into greater harmony with ourselves and with one another.
Session 2: A Daylong Meditation Workshop – 11am-5pm at Samadhi, 796 Beacon St., Newton Center. ($75 in advance, $85 cash or check at the door)
We will continue our investigation and direct experience of Wise Intention with a day of practice. The day will include meditation instructions and the practice of sitting and walking along with ample time for exploring your meditation practice questions.
CLICK HERE TO ATTEND BOTH SESSIONS AND SAVE $15 – each session will include sufficient time for participants to engage in conversation with Narayan about their personal practice and challenges.
“I try to help practitioners approach their meditation practice and their lives with compassion and wisdom. Bringing a loving attentiveness into each moment allows us to learn kindness rather than condemnation, and discernment rather than judgment”.
