Invitation to Building a Mindful New Year

It’s that time of year. Self-reflection is at an all time high and our minds are naturally drawn to what we want to keep, discard, or create as a new year dawns. It may also be a time of both greater activity (celebrations, shopping, visitors, travel) and greater space (our normal routines go a bit sideways). All of which goes to say: it is a great time to practice meditation.

Writers and Buddhist teachers Susan Piver and Lodro Rinzler have invited a collection of accomplished dharma teachers to guide you through the end of one year and into another with mindfulness and awareness, focused on the six priorities that will benefit you most as you lay the ground for what is to come.

Susan Piver and Lodro Rinzler Present:

In Buddhist thought, the path to a life of joy is built on taking six actions consistently: Generosity; Discipline; Patience, Exertion; Meditation; and Wisdom. Each day of this program will focus on one of those themes. Three different dharma teachers each day will guide three different meditations on that theme, beginning at 8:00 AM EST on December 26 and ending at 7:00 PM EST on December 31. All sessions will be streaming online and easy to access.

You are invited to drop into one or all sessions. Since they won’t be recorded, we’ve chose times we hope will make it possible for anyone, anywhere to access these valuable practices. From Zen to Vipassana to Tibetan practices, a variety of lineages are represented.
