9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Program Leader
Radhule Weininger and Guest Faculty

Radhule Weininger, supported by guest faculty, will teach this study-series on how we can foster emotional balance through mindful awareness and the practice of compassion for ourselves and others.  We will learn to develop new patterns of emotional stability and inner happiness by addressing some of the long-standing, recurrent, painful patterns in our lives. Together we will discover how to respond to the challenges we face creatively and kindly rather than by withdrawing or blaming. Some material will be drawn from Radhule’s forthcoming book Heartwork: The Path to Self-Compassion.

This course is appropriate for new students as well as those, who attended this course before, longing to deepen their understanding and practice, as well as yearning to find a deeper kind of grounding in these uncertain times.

In one full day and four half-day sessions we will address a variety of topics.

  • We begin the series by setting an intention for our practice and how to establish a solid meditation practice in the midst of our busy daily lives
  • We learn to identify triggers, to choose a Mindful Pause and to respond to what upsets us with equanimity and self-acceptance
  • By inquiring deeply we learn about ourselves through profound self-awareness paired with self-compassion.
  • In specific we learn how to change painful patterns, which arise in relationship with others, so we can shape a new path forward for ourselves and those around us.
  • Further we look at how to let go of the burden of self-blame, shame and resentment through self-acceptance, compassion and forgiveness.
  • We conclude this series by learning how to care for ourselves in the midst of it all and how to establish a sense of inter-being in a challenging world.
