The Art of Being Human

Meditation for our times

May 14 – 16, 2021


“In this time of great uncertainty when the global pandemic
brings anxiety and loss to all of us, when climate disruption and
threats to our natural world are very present in our life, when
social, economic and racial inequality, injustice and violence
occurs every day, when political warring and personal despair
and depression, burnout, loneliness are present for all of us, we
need teachings, we need practices and we need each other, we
need community, not only to navigate through challenging times
but to actually recognize possibility of the seeds of creating a
good human society.”

Acharya (senior teacher) Arawana Hayashi, Director of The Art of Being Human

When we truly create the time and space to dive fully into meditation practice,
we are able to experience the possibilities of openness and relaxation that exist
when we settle fully into the present moment. Through the practice of
meditation, we glimpse unconditional goodness as the ground of our existence.
