... Dear Ones, I am teaching a daylong this Saturday for all who identify as a womxn. Look forward in this practice with you! 🙏🏼💚 -.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-. The busy-ness... The activities... The many roles we identify with... How do we move from surviving to thriving? How are we tending to and caring for ourselves? We each share a common longing to heal our hearts, honor our interconnectedness, and take compassionate action in the world. . . Within each womxn there is an innate wisdom. At this daylong, we will delve into this wisdom with mindfulness meditation and the Buddha’s teachings on suffering to transform the deep conditioning that keeps us from expressing ourselves freely. With this practice together, we can realize an opportunity to move deeper into our experience and know the capacity of the heart. . Date: Saturday February 23 Time: 10am - 4:30pm Location: Insight Santa Cruz No fee, by donation. . . We chose the spelling of “women” as “womxn” to be clear that transwomxn and genderqueer people are an intrinsic part of the womxn identity. Attendees only need to identify as womxn in a way that is significant to them. This event is open to womxn of all colors, shapes, sizes, and lineages. —> Please bring an item to put on our community altar. . *artwork by Laura Harris . #dharmawomxn #meditation #practice #mindfulness #sangha #fiercehearts #divinefeminine #wisdom #heartpractices

... Have you ever thought: “I tried meditating, but I just can’t quiet the mind, I can’t stop thinking.” Actually... We are not trying to stop thinking. Thinking is what the mind does. At first, we learn to ignore those thoughts and eventually we turn toward the process of the mind itself. Seeing clearly how certain habitual thought processes arise. With daily practice, we can see how the mind works and not get so attached to the thinking. Letting go of the story. ... The heart beats The lungs breath The mind thinks Let’s practice being with it all just as it is....together. ... Fierce Hearts is tonight 6-7:30pm at 740 Front St Ste 240 Santa Cruz CA All Are Welcome ♥️ ... #meditation #mindfulness #heartmind #breath #practice #natureofphenomena #integrate #dhammaforlife #fiercehearts #pathoftherebelliousone

... What is insight meditation? Why do we practice? How do we establish a practice? If you are new to meditation or been practicing for decades... Let’s practice together. All are welcome ♥️ Tonight and every Sunday 6-7:30pm. . Each day as we practice meditation, we are strengthening our ability to be reliable with ourselves. It isn’t about getting it right or attaining some ideal state. No matter what comes up... aches, boredom, sleepiness, various thoughts and emotions... we develop a loyalty to our experience. . #meditation #dailypractice #seeingclearly #curiosity #careaboutit #mindfulness #howdoyourelatetothis #ahumanprocess #fiercehearts #pathoftherebelliousone
