Mindfulness and Crazy Wisdom
October 28, 2017, 10am-4pm
Location: Buena Vista Methodist Church, 2311 Buena Vista Ave, Alameda
Details: Treat yourself to a relaxing day of mindfulness meditation - sitting and walking – interspersed with the poetry and humor of the ages.
The workshop will include guided meditations on the evolutionary origin of our body and emotions; reflections on death and dying; and an exploration of the tricky delusions of mind and the mystery of consciousness itself. Drawing on the book that became an underground classic, “Essential Crazy Wisdom,” we will hear from poets and crazy wisdom masters from Lao Tzu and Hafiz to Mark Twain and Lily Tomlin, giving us some perspective on this strange, impossible life we are leading. You may not get enlightened, but you are likely to have a few laughs and acquire a healthy dose of inspiration.Cost: This event is offered on a donation basis.
