Work as Spiritual Practice

Saturday, January 26, 2019 - 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Join us for this interactive exploration of everyday work experiences.

We spend many, many hours of our lives working, or at work. Sometimes the work environment is wonderful, but it can be challenging, even very chaotic. Zen practice can provide insights, support and tools that help to navigate the various work landscapes.
We will explore our own relationship to what arises at work (boredom, frustrations, irritation, restlessness, procrastination, reactivity, etc.) as we engage in simple work activities.
Influenced by the circumstances of those who attend, this day long workshop will also:

• Explore what we think might be missing in our work lives,
• Discuss dealing with difficult people,
• Practice mindfulness,
• Introduce awareness tools as antidotes to many common work issues,
• Learn from teachings about right livelihood, and balance,
• Explore how to cultivate happiness at work will all be part of.

Please wear clothing appropriate for the work portion of the workshop.
