IMCC DEEPENING INSIGHTS – Embracing the Gifts of Life: Imperfection, Change, & Emptiness

Thia Powers

In this series, we begin by exploring three concepts: that life is imperfect, that change is constant, and that emptiness is the true nature of the self. In Buddhism these are known as the Three Characteristics of Existence. Whether you’re new to spiritual explorations or a seasoned seeker, these sessions will be an opportunity for discovery and will inform your journey. Topics will include:

• Ways of letting go: the paradox of craving
• Creating happiness: why is it elusive and can it last?
• Luminous emptiness: experiencing our true nature

We approach these practices and inquiries, that are both profound and practical, in order to better understand ourselves, others, and the nature of life. Join us to find a freedom that is always already there.

Registration includes three sessions.  Silent and guided meditations will be a part of each session. At least 6 months of regular meditation practice is recommended, but not necessary. Additional information provided upon registration, or contact ThiaPowersAmen@gmail.com.
