About the Event
Gather with us to face the reality of these times in community. We’ll move into a both/and mind/heart space that encourages us to face into the crises of these times and the resultant invitations to deepen into profound interbeing with all sentient beings, into engaged relationship with Mother Earth. We’ll base our experiential explorations on insights from Buddhism and teachers such as Joanna Macy, Chris Bache, and Andrew Harvey. The workshop will include guided reflections/ meditations/ movement, journaling, silence, small and large group discussions. The day will begin with practices that acknowledge the difficult challenges we face and move into identifying and cultivating some of our personal, collective and spiritual resources. Facilitators Jean Haley and Kaia Svien are studying our times passionately. We look forward to sharing what we are seeing and receiving insights from participants. Please RSVP if you can as it helps us plan. Bring a sack lunch and a journal if you keep one. We will meet in person unless viral conditions move us to online, in which case we’ll let you know via registration or a note on the calendar. Jean Haley has been studying and practicing Buddhism since 1998. She completed the Community Dharma Leaders training through Spirit Rock Meditation Center in 2012 and has been a guest teacher at Common Ground and elsewhere since then. She is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in private practice and also teaches at the Center for Spirituality & Healing at the University of Minnesota. Kaia Svien, M.S. is a meditation instructor, spiritual guide and program designer with more than 25 years of experience providing classes, workshops and private consultation in mindfulness practice focused on building psychological and spiritual resilience in the face of climate change.
