Aspiration Into Action Workshop for the New Year

Saturday, January 5 from 3:00 to 5:00 PM

A NEW YEAR’S WORKSHOP to energize your life, meditation or yoga practice and connect your heart, mind and action.

Looking for inspiration to stick with your meditation or yoga practice?  Want to start the new year off with clearer and deeper motivation and meaning?  Forget about resolutions!  Spiritual traditions teach us that heartfelt ASPIRATIONS are the key to energizing meaningful lives and regular practice.  That's because they originate from the deepest level of both heart and mind.  Drawing on the Buddhist understanding of altruistic aspiration and motivation, together with techniques of psychology and ritual, this workshop offers simple techniques to make and keep aspirations.

Each participant will learn to:

1) Create a personalized aspiration from the heart for 2019.

2) Identify and let go of that which may obstruct your aspiration.

3) Identify and energize that which will enact your aspiration.

4) Develop a brief routine (under 2 minutes) to connect with and put into practice your aspiration in terms of specific activities and relationships.

Workshop includes a group meditation of loving kindness and compassion for ourselves and our world.

Suggested donation $15 to $25 – or whatever you can afford.

No registration required. Doors open at 2:45pm. RSVPs appreciated to

Feel free to bring rattles or drums if so moved
