Practice as Parenting: cultivating resources for sustained engagment in a challenging world

4 Wed. evenings from 6-7:30pm
Every other week:
April 18, May 2, 16 and 30
Stone Creek Zen Center in Graton

As parents we tend to the world both through the microcosm of the needs of our families, and through outward engagement in the communities around us. We will explore the relationship between inward and outward practice in parenting, and how to find balance in our lives between them. In this series, we will begin or deepen a meditation practice; and consider teachings from both the Zen tradition and contemporary mindfulness practices that can support us in creating a sustainable way to tend to our lives, families and world. The group will use a “listening circle” model so we can share our stories, our triumphs, challenges and insights on the path of parenting.
No previous meditation experience is required, and drop in is ok throughout the series.

$80 for series/ $20 drop in
member rate: $60 for series/ $15 drop in
sliding rates available if needed

DHARMA AND WHITE PRIVILEGE: WAKING UP TOGETHER – SATURDAY APRIL 28

11:30 – 4:30

As white practitioners in the U.S., we have been, and are, shaped by social, economic and other systems that benefit us at the expense of people of color. To the extent that we are unaware of this system of white privilege and racial conditioning, we are not free to make skillful choices about how to act within it. Rather, we unwittingly behave in ways that lead to suffering for ourselves, our fellow practitioners, our community and the larger society.

In this 1/2 day of practice, guided meditation, self-reflection and dialog we will investigate our acculturated belief systems and how they serve as barriers to awakening, both our own and others’. We will explore ways of moving towards greater freedom and the opportunities for action that open as our minds become less encumbered by constructed identities.

BYO bag lunch. Suggested donation $40, proceeds will go to support East Bay Meditation Center, no one turned away,.
