Your Heart's Aspiration - A Weeklong Workshop

Monday, January 29, 2018 - 5:00 pm to Sunday, February 04, 2018 - 1:00 pm

Watch Hogen Roshi's short video on the Heart's Aspiration.

You have reason to be alive, there are things that only you can do. This confusing and chaotic time is filled with the potential for violence, environmental and social crises. There's so much that needs to be done and you can't do everything.  What is your life asking from you?  You have gifts to offer to your future self, to those whom you will meet and your community.  What does the world need from you? This week-long workshop is about discovering your heart's deepest aspirations and timeless purpose.

The workshop will unfold vow in the following progression:


This week is a mixture of presentation, self-reflection, guided meditation and group discussion. For adults of all ages.

While we will have periods of meditation, this is not a sesshin, and you may bring a journal for use in the workshop or personal reflection.
