Heart's Aspiration Workshop - at Dharma Rain

This workshop will help you discover your heart's deepest desire and your life's purpose.

Each of us has a reason to be alive. Each of us has things that only we can do. Each of us has gifts to offer our future selves and those around us.

Please come and look intimately at your Self to uncover your timely and timeless purpose.

There will be a mixture of presentation, guided meditation, and discussion.

This workshop is offered by Dharma Rain and is open to ZCO members and the public. Come to the building at the end of the driveway.

Absorb World Sound: An Evening of Listening Meditation

Immersion in the beauty and mystery of sound and music can unguard the heart, energize awareness, and open us to subtle dimensions of being. For this reason meditation with sounds is an ancient practice found in many contemplative traditions.

We will practice deep receptivity and embodied resonance with soundscapes live - blended by Jogen - as well as with our own voice through seed syllable toning.
