6-WEEK SERIES with Rebecca Denk
Enhance your ongoing meditation practice, or begin to develop/recommit to yours, within the support of Dharma Wisdom Seattle Sangha (spiritual community). This summer we are taking our cue from Sylvia Boorstein: "Don't just do something, Sit there."
Our summer session will be a lighter version of Dharma Wisdom Seattle Sangha. There will be no book, reading assignments or homework – just an opportunity to be led in meditation in community. Appropriate for both those brand-new to sitting meditation and existing Sangha members who want to maintain community and connection. This seated meditation will evolve from guided to silent over the 6-week session.
Rebecca Denk has been teaching yoga at SYA for more than a decade, has been a participant in every Dharma Wisdom Seattle session since its inception, and facilitates the summer sangha.
In keeping with the tradition of Theravadan Buddhism, the teachings will be freely offered. Participants are encouraged to make a donation (dana) of any amount for the instruction. To pay for the costs of using the studio and its resources, a registration fee of $40 is requested. (Scholarships are available.)
Notes: There are folding chairs, blankets, bolsters, mats, and other props at the studio for our use.
July 20 – August 24
A series allows your teacher to teach progressively and to tailor the class, theme or goal as they get to know each individual over time. Staying with one group for several weeks also builds commitment, community, and understanding for both the student and the teacher. Research shows that we learn better, feel discomfort less, and are more optimistic when we feel included in community. Our series classes build that kind of inclusion.
