Date: Sunday, August 28, 2022
Teacher: Daniele Bollini

What is the relationship between peace & personal little inner wars & collective outer big wars? How does meditation work with both pace and war? The answer is somewhat counterintuitive and has to do with making peace with war instead of against war.

 

Date: Sunday, September 4, 2022

In this gathering we will explore what we can learn from the Mirror about our 4 core principles of wellbeing: kindness, responsibility, vitality and trustworthiness, and what this implies for actions going forward.
