The Power of Faith, the Wisdom of Doubt

with Leslie Booker

7-10am PT / 10am-1pm ET / 3-6pm GMT / 4-7pm CET

Instead of viewing doubt as a hindrance, can we view it as a portal to wisdom?

Faith is referred to as “the seed” of our practice, and without it nothing can begin. Faith is intuitive, primordial; it’s an access point that we are born with and can continue to fine tune as we move through life.

For many of us, we’ve had to lean on our faith to stay strong throughout these challenging times; though, between the global pandemic, food instability, the impact of multiple climate catastrophes, xenophobia, homophobia, paternalism and racism, our faith might feel a bit rocked. We might even experience this doubt as an invitation to stop and disengage from the world.

During this Day of Practice, we will explore the journey from bright faith, to verified faith, to unshakeable faith. We will also learn the 5 Spiritual Powers: practices to help us liberate our hearts and minds and live with greater ease.

During this Day of Practice, you will learn how to:

  • Use your doubt as a vehicle to awakening
  • Live more freely, using 5 Spiritual Powers practices
  • Apply these time-honored teachings to your daily life

What is Day of Practice?

Sangha Live’s 3-hour, LIVE Day of Practice allows for you to drop in deeper, develop your meditation skills, and reset your intentions through sustained sitting.

Days of Practice includes longer periods of meditation, interspersed with wise teachings, an interactive Q&A with our teacher, and more.

Replay access is available to all registrants, in case you are unable to join us live or would like to re-watch.

How is Day of Practice different from Sangha Live’s Daily/Sunday classes?

Our shorter Daily Meditation (60 mins) and Sunday Sangha (90 mins) programs emphasize dharma teachings, while our longer Days of Practice (3 hours) emphasize development of meditation practice.

Daily practice is crucial for watering seeds of mindfulness, but extended periods of deep attention such as these, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, can be uniquely fruitful.

How do I prepare?

You will want to prepare a space to sit comfortably and quietly for the three-hour duration.

Your personal link to join will be emailed to you upon registration.

You’ll receive a reminder email 1-hour prior to the event.

Cost

Day of Practice is offered on a sliding scale basis, with a suggested rate of $35. There will also be an opportunity to provide dana (generosity) during the event. No one turned away for lack of funds.

Your generosity supports the teacher and their transmission of the Dharma, as well as the accessibility of Sangha Live programming.
