What we're about

New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings. ~ Lao Tzu

Life can throw us a curveball and we find ourselves up against an uphill battle to restore a sense of balance and centredness. The suffering is always a process of growth; it asks us to shed something away, but that is not an easy task all alone by one individual. As a 'village' is needed to raise a child, so a group is needed to support the healing and growth through difficult times. Brene Brown's work suggests that rising strong after falling is a spiritual practice that brings a sense of perspective, meaning, and purpose to our lives.

This work is multi-dimensional and requires learning new ways and to bring new practices in our daily life. The aim of this group is to come together to help activate our inner resources and pool together the external resources on this path.

We will explore different works such as Leia Francisco, Brene Brown, Pema Chodron and other teachers and guides and integrate their teachings in our life to rise strong working through our transitions and to find the fulfilment in our life which we all deserve.

We will start with Leia Francisco's "Writing Through Transitions" and Mindfulness meditations of Tara Brach & Jack Kornfield. We will read, hear and discuss these works, and write or express verbally about our journey (optional - we respect privacy and choice to share or not share). The feedback will be provided only with resonance and compassion. The intention is to create a supportive and non-judgmental space with full confidentiality, utmost trust in each other so we can empower ourselves to rise strong again.

The work will continue with works such as Brene Brown's work "Rising Strong" and Shinzen Yonge's Working with Difficult Emotions and many others as foundational practices for healing and alleviation of suffering.

We have the capacity within ourselves to turn us around. DR GABOR MATÉ

Working through Life Transitions

Newmarket Public Library

CA$10.00

Working through transitions and changes in life sometime requires compassionate and open hearted support of others, especially when those transitions are difficult and heartbreakingly painful. At those times we need to find ways to cultivate resilience, courage and strength and to bring peace in our hearts and ease in our life. We will explore resources to work together by discussions, writing practice and other mindfulness ways to develop our innate capacity to rise strong through transitions and difficult times. We will start with Leia Francisco's "Writing Through Transitions". We will read and discuss the work, and then write or express verbally about our journey (optional - we respect privacy and choice to share or not share). The feedback will be provided only with resonance and compassion. The intention is to create a supportive and non-judgmental space with full confidentiality, utmost trust in each other so we can empower ourselves to rise strong and resilient. In tandem, we will discuss Brene Brown's work "Rising Strong" to explore the core ideas. We will also include mindfulness practices such as meditation (Tara Brach & Jack Kornfield), breathing (Pranyama) and working on difficult emotions (Shinzen Young and Pema Chodron) as foundational practices for healing and alleviation of suffering. Please do not hesitate to send me a message or call me [masked]) to discuss further or if you have any questions or comments. The program will continue with various programs and will run in cycles the content of which will be described in the similar fashion as above. A donation of $10 is suggested to cover the rental and other admin costs. Looking forward to see you, Mukin
