In the midst of sweeping global changes, many of us are looking for reliable insight into re-orienting our perspective and lifestyle to foster clarity and peacefulness. Traditional cultures have long understood the nature of existence and the relevance of every aspect of life toward the well-being of the whole. We will draw on ancient literature, e.g., the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, to garner a glimpse of our human capacity to navigate the waves of everyday life with the help of timeless principles such as non-harming, truthfulness, patience, compassion and non-greed.
FALL 2021 – 5 Tuesdays, October 19 – November 16, 3:10 – 4:30 p.m. PT, $40, College of Marin Community Education Virtual Classroom
The Wisdom Circle is an monthly gathering to explore living wisdom every day. Each month I’ll propose a central theme and offer two of my H E A R T H blogs for reflection and discussion. As embedded in this word “hearth,” we’re coming together around a symbolic hearth of timeless wisdom that embodies the heart, earth, art, and (for listening) the ear.
For each session I will fold in the abiding wisdom carried within world poetry and our non-human kin, such as the trees, birds, sky, and earth. More specifically, I’ll draw on my training in, experience with, and reverence for the wisdom teachings preserved within the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavata Purana, Bhagavad Gita, Tantric texts, and Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
ONGOING – 1st Wednesday of each month, 10:30 a.m. – noon PT, $15 per gathering
