Discovering Wisdom in the Midst of Chaos: An Introduction to Contemplative Psychology

with Melissa Moore

May 15 - 17

Co-Sponsored By Karuna Training & Karmê Chöling

In the midst of an election year we will experientially explore the chaos of our life and times, and do so with the aspiration to tap into our innate equanimity, discernment, compassion, ingenuity, and clarity! Bringing space, power and awareness into play in the process of genuinely making friends with our energy as it is (and the world’s energy as it is), can make a huge difference in accessing our innate intrinsic health. 

Contemplative Psychology starts with this notion of intrinsic health and understands that within the confusion and chaos of daily life are all the answers, awareness and wisdom one needs. It takes mindfulness awareness methods, however, to be able to train in and access this wisdom. This weekend introduces these methods.

One does not need to be in a healing profession or a Buddhist for this material to be applicable. Open to new meditation students and seasoned meditators alike.
