I felt totally overwhelmed this year.
Whether we were protecting ourselves from coronavirus, organizing for social justice, or grieving the loss of a loved one, we all faced great challenges in 2021. As our karmic, systemic crises continue to intensify, many of us feel overwhelmed with anger, fear, agitation, despair, paralysis, exhaustion, loneliness… the list goes on and on.
With the turning of the calendar year, we might be tempted to improve ourselves and our life situation, by working harder to become more comfortable and secure amidst the global chaos, or more worthy of love and belonging. Yet, these efforts can be exhausting, and do not lead to true or lasting satisfaction.
The good news? All of this pain and discomfort make for the most fertile ground for spiritual growth. Through meditation practice, we can lift the veil of our delusions. Once we fully accept and embrace our reality – especially that which is frightening, uncomfortable, or painful – we can access the sense of wholeness, peace, and interconnection that is our birthright.
2022 gives us a new opportunity to work towards balance, and personal and collective liberation, using the Dharma as our guide. It starts with this very breath.
This four-module course is designed for beginning and advanced meditators across the globe. Caverly will instruct us on grounding in the present moment, and forming and sticking to conscious intention in this year and beyond.
