Making Friends With Yourself
with David Nichtern, Senior Shambhala Teacher

Wednesday, April 15th
Location: 11 East Main Street, Mt. Kisco

Many beginning meditators experience fear and aggression toward themselves and that can make it really challenging to experience deeper insight and compassion. If we are going to undertake such a journey - getting to know ourselves more fully - it is essential to be gentle and kind toward ourselves and be willing to start exactly where we are.

The workshop will include meditation instruction and practice, dharma talk and discussion. All levels welcome.
