"Awakening Joy" with James Baraz
and Louise Shanagher.

Louise will present fun and creative practices for supporting children and families to "Awaken Joy"  in their daily lives. True happiness is not about acquiring anything; instead, it comes from opening to the natural joy and aliveness inside you. As we are bombarded with messages that heighten our fear and sadness about the world, more than ever it is vital to understand the importance of joy as a central aspect of spiritual practice. We need to remember how to stay connected to that place inside that makes life worth living. Our own cultivation of well-being and joy can become our gift to a troubled world.   In this workshop we will learn practical tools to incline the mind towards joy through silent meditation as well as interactive experiential processes . 

Topics include:

  • Inclining the mind toward wholesome states
  • Appreciation (wonder and gratitude)
  • Embracing the difficult as a path to joy
  • Learning to love ourselves

Recording will be sent to all participants
