My teachers, Ruth Gilbert and Jon Parmenter, are giving a talk in downtown Toronto on Thursday July 3 at 7:00pm. They live on the west coast and since they do not actively seek new students or maintain a public profile, the opportunity to hear them teach is rare and valuable.
Disconnecting — that is, ignoring, shutting out, shutting down — is a major obstacle to awareness practice. One might say, THE major obstacle. Ruth and Jon will present practical, practice-able tools both for formal meditation and everyday life to help us reconnect, come into the present, and open our hearts.
If you have an interest in awareness or mindfulness practice, or if you are one of my students, I very strongly urge you to come. Please register soon as seating is limited.
