COURAGE OF THE HEART
"We can’t find freedom in some other place or some other time, we must find it here and now in this very life." Jack Kornfield
FREEDOM IS BORN OUT OF OUR CAPACITY TO WORK WITH ANY ENERGY OR CHALLENGE THAT ARISES.
Very often what nourishes our spirit most is what brings us face to face with our greatest limitations and difficulties. Teacher Ajahn Chah calls this “practicing against the grain,” or “facing into one’s difficulties.” Every life has periods and situations of hardship that call on our spirit. Sometimes we are faced with the pain or illness of a child or a parent we love dearly. Sometimes it is a loss we face in career or business. Sometimes it is just our own loneliness, confusion, or fear. Sometimes we are forced to live with painful circumstances or people that truly challenge us. Yet in these very difficulties, we can learn the true strength and courage of our heart.
Participants must provide their own supplies for this offering. Please bring a mat or thick cushion along with any additional aids you would like for your complete comfort. Blankets, pillows, bolsters, eye coverings, etc are all highly encouraged! Be prepared to fully support your body as we will be lying/sitting on the corkwood floor for 90 minutes. It is common for guests to bring a variety and style of thick cushions to put on top of their mat. Think favorite pillows, sleeping bags, and other supportive items from home. Please understand that a simple yoga mat will not provide enough support. For this time together, we also recommend dressing in comfortable and loose clothing.
***As of August 30, 2021, we have reinstated mask requirements for all participants in our community offerings. Ingham county has now been deemed an area of “high” transmission of Covid-19 so we must take all the precautions we can to stay safe AND relax! Responsible precautions remain in place for this community event and we ask all participants to use the practice of personal accountability, in regard to health and well-being.
Doors will open 15 minutes prior and will close promptly at the scheduled starting time of this experience. Plan to arrive early to allow time to check in and get settled. Ample FREE parking is available onsite.
