These days we are constantly looking for ways to do things faster and with less effort. The good news is that in terms of spiritual unfoldment, there are ways to satisfy the first requirement: speeding up our progress. (Sorry to say that the effort piece can’t be avoided… 😉 )
If we are willing to accept the challenge of meeting our limiting conditioning head on, to swim directly upstream to the flow of our karma, we have access to a powerful and joyful method of unfolding. By embracing the principle of short-term discomfort for long-term freedom we can make dramatic changes to our levels of stress. sense of connection, peace of mind and compassion.
Come to this talk and meditation practice to explore ways to jumpstart and turbocharge your awakening journey. As always, we will be incorporating 30 minutes of meditation practice into the class.
Awaken in Toronto classes are offered on the basis of dāna in order to support opportunities for participants to develop their practice of generosity. We encourage you to give generously, however that looks for your situation.
All funds go towards the work of supporting awakening in the city.
This class will be lead by Christopher Lawley. Christopher has been practicing meditation since 1999 and studying and training with dharma teachers Doug Duncan and Catherine Pawasarat since 2006. Christopher is a passionate practitioner of karma yoga (‘meditation in action’/selfless service), an enthusiastic advocate of Doug Duncan’s ‘Challenges’ practice, and a founding member of Awaken in Toronto. He is interested in connecting with others in the city who are looking to integrate meditation and daily urban life.
Thursday classes are held from 7:30pm to 9pm at Inhabit Pilates at 1211 Bathurst (just north of Dupont.) If you are driving, there is a parking lot for the studio one block east on Albany, just north of Bridgman.
