We may know about mindfulness or have tasted it, we may have a sense of its transformative power. Yet we need regular intentional practice to recognize (again and again) our deep grounded essence - from where love and wisdom naturally flow.
40 Day Practice of Mindfulness, Compassion & Wisdom is a carefully curated offering that unfolds systematically over 40 days. Through the weeks we will build our capacity to clearly notice, sense and feel and to move from reactive habitual patterns of the mind to a more receptive sense of being.
Since each of us will come with our own background, our patterns, propensities and our own capacities, hence, the intention of this program is to support you to be able to listen to yourself, what you might need in that moment and how to respond to that. In line with that, the practices are also trauma sensitive by the way they are designed.
STRUCTURE OF THE PROGRAM
The program has TWO integral aspects:
- Daily Meditative Practice as a community
You will receive daily guidance on the meditative practice through pre-recorded guided audio/video meditations, prompts for journaling and contemplation This will be supported by 30 min group-practice in the morning (on ALL days at 6:30 AM IST ) and evening (Mon- Fri at 7:30 PM IST) which one can join.
2. Weekly Inquiry Webinars
Inquiry webinars will happen weekly on Saturday from 5:15-6:30 pm IST and will be led by Sandy Dias Andrade, the facilitator of the program. This is an opportunity to come together and hold space for whatever is showing up in your practice, to have a deeper understanding of that and see how we can meet it.
- June 24th - August 2nd, 2023
