Recent events have highlighted the ways in which we unconsciously act out of our perceived identities, sometimes causing conflict and suffering. Let’s explore how we can honor and express who we are in ways which do not contribute to more suffering in our relationships.

Presented by Kim Weeber

 

Join us on Zoom for a meditation practice at 7:00 PM, followed by a dharma talk at 7:35. 

There will be a short Q&A after the talk by Kim Weeber, founding teacher.
