The Joy of Embracing Change

Sometimes we long for change, and other times we want things to stay the same, yet everything changes. This is wonderful! Instead of being overwhelmed by the uncertainty of change, we can learn to embrace the truth of impermanence and apply this wisdom to our relationships and other aspects of daily life. Join us each week for practical teachings and meditations to transform the reality of change into a powerful joy!

This drop-in series is suitable for all levels of experience and everyone is welcome!
