Event Description
Some people come to meditation so they can quiet their minds or only experience “good” emotions, but then stop practicing when they realize this doesn’t actually happen. Although it may not be what was intended, this is totally normal! With mindfulness, we're not trying to stop thinking or feeling unwanted emotions, but rather we learn to embrace whatever comes our way, leading to more resilience and, ironically, joy. This will be explored through guided meditation, a talk and Q&A.

This workshop will be offered in two parts (March 1st and 15th). You do not need to register or attend both sessions in order to participate but registering for both sessions is strongly encouraged.

Open to all levels of practice and experience. Come as you are. We will incorporate light movement throughout the event but no special clothing is needed.

Our instructor Dawn Mauricio (she/her) has been practicing and studying Insight Meditation since 2005, and has graduated from several Buddhist programs, including Spirit Rock's 4-year Retreat Teacher Training. She teaches with a playful, dynamic, and heartfelt approach in Canada and the US, to teens, people of color, and folks of all backgrounds.
