Election 2020: Uncertainty Abounds:

with Pat Coffey
It is finally here. The election has arrived! It comes wrapped in an accelerating pandemic, economic collapse, racial unrest, severe environmental stress and a compromised, if not collapsing, democracy. You might say that our national plate is quite full.
Tonight, we will explore the stabilizing power of your contemplative practice. How leaning into your practice in times of duress can support calm clear seeing which can inform your appropriate skillful response. We will practice several simple calming techniques along with our regular insight practice.
