Class at Emeritus (DVC): The Buddha’s Eight Steps to Happiness

More than 2000 years ago one of the great spiritual luminaries, Buddha Shakyamuni, experienced Supreme Enlightenment. His great realization led to what is known as the Four Noble Truths in the Buddhist tradition. Part of his teachings – the Eightfold Noble Path to transcend suffering and attain liberation – can be directly applied in our daily life practice. Come and dive into this ocean of timeless wisdom!

 

Mondays February 26 & March 5 from 1:00-3:00pm

“Find Your Own Goddess Power” Workshop at East West Bookshop in Mountain View

How are archetypes, mythic stories, and qualities of Goddesses alive within you? And how do you express them in your personal and professional life? The story of the Goddess is your story as well…the story of birth, childhood, adulthood, and death, the story of love and healing, renewal and change. In this experiential workshop you will learn how Goddesses can serve as inspiring and empowering guides in your life and in your expression of creativity. We will engage in interactive practices and visualization exercises. Find your own Goddess power and change your life!
