Treasuring The Senses

Wednesdays, Starting January 18th through February 22nd 10-11 AM (Pacific Time)

Description

We often fail to notice the beauty that resides within our senses and minds. Viewing a brilliant sunset, smelling the first flowers of spring, or hearing the sound of a loved one’s voice, our senses can become direct pathways to the heart of our being, enriching our lives with delight and joy. In this course, we’ll learn simple ways to appreciate the senses, as we begin to explore mind’s role in creating our inner world. The more we experience the richness of everyday life, the more inner resources we have to share with others. No prerequisites; open to all.

Format

Classes meet online for six weeks, for one hour a week. Classes are recorded and you will have access to the recordings for your personal use only. Each week, there will be a short lecture followed by experiential practices and discussion.

An online chat room gives you the optional ability to meet and dialog with your fellow students.
