Surrender: Experiencing “What Is”
February 25, 2016 - March 31, 2016
Surrender! Let Go! Easy to say, perhaps harder to do? And what does ‘surrender’ in terms of awakening and growth really mean? How does one learn to surrender, and why might you even want to strengthen your ability to surrender? What is the difference between the closed grasping fist and the open receptive palm? In this series at the Dharma Hub we will together explore the notion of surrender, using a variety of reflections, tools and meditations.
Surrender is a six week series on Thursday nights at 7pm at the Dharma Hub, from February 25 to March 31.
In this series we will cover:
- How to increase our ability to surrender into the moment as it is. (and to see the benefits in doing so)
- Growing the mind of awareness and noticing.
- Strengthening the ability to ride the waves of body, mind and emotions.
- Pattern recognition skills to unlock what drives our unconscious habits and difficulties.
These classes can be attended on a drop in basis, and we also recommend attending the whole series in order to go deeper.
Time: 7-8:30pm (please arrive 10 minutes early).
Location: 2232 Bowness Rd NW. (On the Kensington side of Crowchild Trail, not in Bowness)
Teachers: Cara Conroy-Low, Maya Lewandowsky & Evangelos Diavolitsis are the Dharma Hub’s resident community teachers. Each will teach two classes in the six class series. Together they bring together an expansive yet grounded and practical path for developing the meditative mind, sharing from their practical experiences on the path of liberation. Read their full bios.
What to bring: A meditation cushion if you have one, and a notebook.
These classes are offered in the spirit of Dāna” (pron. dahna), a Sanskrit and Pali word meaning “generosity” or “giving.” It is an ancient and traditional practice of ‘selfless giving’ that in today’s world is quite revolutionary. By cultivating a healthy spirit of generosity, we deepen our own practice of letting go and trust, while supporting teachers to make these healing tools available to all. There will be a Dāna bowl located at the Dharma Hub entrance before each class. More about Dāna.
