Coming to Our Senses

Reducing stress and building resilience doesn't have to be a solitary project. We can invite the world to help us. Everything we see, hear, smell, taste and touch helps us to let go of habitual thoughts and emotions that prevent us from enjoying our life.

As we come more fully into our senses, life is more fun. Enjoying the richness of the present moment, we can fully appreciate a bite of food, or a song, or a color that catches our eye.

This workshop will mix brief talks, discussion, experiential exercises and meditation. It will benefit experienced meditators and those new to the practice.

He has served as a Shastri (senior teacher) in Shambhala, as well as a teacher of stress management for the Penn Program for Mindfulness. For the last six years, he has led singing workshops that join the gentleness, acceptance and precision of mindfulness with an open and supportive atmosphere that encourages all types of vocal expression. He currently teaches music at Temple University and leads a monthly mindfulness group for Temple employees.
