How does meditation help create the conditions for empowerment? In my thinking, our inner power is best cultivated in the soil of freedom, safety and understanding. Tonight's meditation will tap into techniques that boost those qualities in our experience, first individually then collectively.

The tension between the opposite poles of despair and empowerment makes each experience possible. In other words, we can't fully experience empowerment unless we also experience its shadow - despair. Inspired by the work of ecophilosopher Joanna Macy, we'll look at the way despair and empowerment work together to facilitate each other into being.

What does (dis)empowerment feel like in the body, what triggers it, subdues it, allows it? How can we allow ourselves to experience power without the power-over, or power-under? We will explore this through an embodied contemplation

In this sit, we’ll drop in and seek a comfortable exploration of a growing edge, the periphery of our understanding of something. Can we find that sweet spot, the place bridging the known and the unknown and empower ourselves through expanding our awareness? We will practice inviting a level of curiosity, closer proximity, and ‘oh’pening to our experiences (and their emotions) that we tend to distance ourselves from.

Dates: Wednesdays May 25, June 22, July 20, August 24, September 21

Dates: Monday, August 29, 7:30pmET
Tonight we will invite ourselves to let go - simplify our attention, drop some of the countless balls of my multiple To-Do lists (and maybe never pick them up again!) in the name of empowering engagement, fulfillment, relief, and connection.
