Bringing Intentions into Action: Embodying Wise Kindness (1-day workshop)

Spirit Rock Meditation Center

We all have good hearts. Seeing suffering around us, our natural instinct is to act to alleviate it.

And yet, given the countless sources of suffering in our world today, we can easily fall into the extremes of either spiritual bypass or compassion burnout. How do we know when to meditate, and when to get off the cushion?

Knowing “when” can be driven by many intentions: the alleviation of anger or fear, or the desire to support social justice.

Together, we’ll explore how to more readily access our good heart’s deep intentions, and to transform it into wise action. The day will include teachings on heart and wisdom-based practices, guided meditations, practical behavior-changing tools, skill-building exercises, discussion, and Q&A.

6 CE credits available for $60, for psychologists and California licensed MFTs, LCSWs, LEPs, LPCCs, nurses, and chiropractors.
