The intention of this program is to encourage a deepening of our meditation practice and, within the refuge of sangha (spiritual community), to share insights and support for living with wisdom and compassion. We'll begin each of our 12 meetings with a half-hour of meditation followed by an investigation of How to Wake Up by Toni Bernhard. This is a personal, practical, Buddhist-inspired guide for skillfully meeting the inevitable joys and sorrows of life. The author's own experience with a life-changing event acts as a catalyst for a deepening of her practice which she gracefully and generously shares with us.
"I love this book! Toni Bernhard has done it again--sharing wisdom teachings in a way that makes them mightily accessible and helpful without any sacrifice of depth."-Tara Brach
