Save the Dates: Eco Dharma Introductory Talks!

Introductory Talk: Eco Dharma … Etc. with B Sitkin

This ongoing class offers a variety of meditative practices and contemplations to help transition from the meditation cushion to encountering the world. Eco Dharma focuses on reconnecting with Nature through activities based on our spectrum of 54 senses (that’s right, 48 more than the traditional five senses!). The “etcetera” part of the class will introduce the art of healing-listening, working with different aspects of our personalities that may be in conflict with one another, and how nature can help us release ego (a.k.a, our “sense of self” or the “I”). Each class will serve as homework assignments for the two-week period between classes.

About the instructor:
B Sitkin’s introduction to meditation started while training as a Postural Integrator and Iyengar yoga teacher at Heartwood College of the Healing Arts in Santa Cruz, California during the late 70’s. Formal Buddhist training in the Kagyu lineage began in 2017 while attending Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado where he received a bachelor’s degree in Contemplative Art Therapy, Sacred Ecology, and Religious Studies.
