DHARMA TALK & MEDITATION with Lama Tsering Ngodup

'THE WORK' OF BYRON KATIE with Barbara Cherington
Mondays thru May 29, 7:45-9:45pm ~ Negative thoughts may run through our minds repetitively, fostering fear, anger, stress, loneliness and depression. The Work is a simple but powerful method of self-inquiry developed by renowned teacher and author Byron Katie, who discovered that any kind of stressful thought can be identified, investigated, and 'turned around', altering the thought's power to shape perception, behavior, or one's sense of self. Join Katie trainee Barbara Cherington to explore this direct way to gain insight into your thinking and move beyond its limitations. $18 or class card at the door

New Morning Class! QIGONG with Maryellen Labelle
Wednesdays through June 7, 10-11am ~ Qigong is an amazing practice for health, healing and inspiration. Qi means life force energy and is the basis of everything in the universe, while gong means the work of cultivation. Qigong is a series of flowing and repeated movements, stretches and breathing exercises that are easy to learn and may be done anywhere without any special equipment. Qigong has many benefits: it loosens muscles ~ improves balance ~ helps prevent injury to joints, ligaments and bones ~ eases stress and balances emotions ~ improves breathing and heart rate ~ promotes deeper, more restorative sleep ~ increases overall energy level and metabolism...and much more! No prior experience is necessary - Qigong may be done by individuals of all ages and modified to each person's level. $30/3 classes, $12 or class card drop-in ~ please wear loose clothing

New 8-Week Series!
MINDFULNESS-BASED STRESS REDUCTION** with Sunada Takagi
Wednesdays, May 31 - July 26, 7:15-9:30pm (no class 6/21),
plus one all-day class on Sunday, July 16, 9-4
Mindfulness isn’t so much a tool or technique, but a different way of being. When we pay attention to our present moments, we start to see ourselves and our world more clearly. Instead of being driven by worry, anxiety, or feeling pressured, we begin to choose our responses more wisely. We find our way to a more balanced and centered life, guided by our inner strengths and values rather than old habits and reactions. This 8-week series is a thorough introduction to the art of mindfulness. It’s based on Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn's pioneering work in mind-body medicine originated at the UMass Medical Center. $450 – preregistration with Sunada required
