A Time For Looking Deeply
A Day of Meditationwith
Sharda RogellSaturday January 14, 2017
9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Sunset United Church
177 Sunset Drive, Regina
The power of meditation connects us with ourselves and all life forms in a way that is real and true, and therefore ultimately compassionate. Whenever we are caught in distracting thoughts and emotions, we disconnect from the fullness of our present moment experience and are often lead into negative and painful ways of being. This leads to suffering for ourselves, for others and for our world. Only when we find the path to our own loving heart and clarity of mind can we find the true release that is possible for all of us.
During this unsettling time in our world, there is a need for us to stop and look deeply together, to not turn away from our heartbreak, and recognize and feel the love that is always present and holds us all together. Once in touch, we can begin to expand the circle of love beyond our usual boundaries where we respect diversity and are inclusive of everyone without distinction.
Sharing together with Sharda's heartfelt guidance, we will draw on our meditative tools of sitting and walking meditation, dharma talks and group discussions to steady and sustain us and to awaken our compassionate heart.
Everyone is welcome.
