Waking Up Together: Taking Your Practice into the World
At Namchak our mission is to increase happiness and meaning in life by cultivating new ways of being and behaving. This time we’re teaming up with Aaron Stern, founder and president of the Academy for the Love of Learning, for a special workshop focused on bringing your inner practice into everyday life. Among the goals: creating the habit of staying in connection with your true self and others, whatever comes your way.
Who this workshop is for?
Whether you’re reeling from national news and events, are struggling with a transition, or feeling a lack of meaning in your everyday life, the practices taught and experienced at this workshop will help equip you to transform your inner and outer relationships at home, at work, and in community. No prior experience required! You’ll emerge with greater perspective and new skills – ready to show up in the world with authenticity and leadership.
What to expect.
Lama Tsomo and Aaron Stern bring their practices together to create a curated experience that weaves together inner and outer work through guided meditations, experience-based reflective exercises, and interactive dialogues. Participants can expect time for solo and shared reflection, as well as nourishing snacks and tea.
Practices will include:
- An introduction to 7-point mind training a Buddhist practice designed to hack everyday challenges into opportunities for growth and happiness.
- Modern techniques for increasing awareness in real time and redirecting action, based on the Academy’s ‘Learning as a Practice for Waking Up’ approach.
- The ancient Buddhist practice of Vipassana (Sublime Seeing—Insight) meditation, taught Tibetan style by Lama Tsomo.
