Anxiety Laboratory

This workshop is for worriers at all levels. No matter what your flavor of anxiety - overthinking, overplanning, overstressing about a third example - IDP teacher Sagar Bhatt invites you to this informal forum to connect on our daily struggles, as an opportunity to examine together the private conversations we carry on in our own minds. All. The. Damn. Time. Sagar will share practical tools of mindfulness and compassion, and together we’ll meditate formally, talk casually, ask questions, and--who knows--we might even have some fun.  

The suggested donation for this community event is $20. Your contribution enables us to continue offer this and other initiatives like it. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

LIVESTREAM - CULTIVATING A HEALING MINDSET

Livestream Only with Dan Cayer, 1st and 3rd Mondays, 8-9pm

Link: https://www.facebook.com/pg/theidproject/

“Be positive.”

“Hang in there.”

“Don’t worry.”

In the pantheon of well-intentioned but lame advice, ill people have borne the brunt of it. Whether you’re suffering from chronic pain, stress, or just feeling out of sorts, the underlying message from others tends to be that you aren’t trying hard enough. If only you were more disciplined, rational, or grateful, life would be better.

This can lead to an attitude that something is deeply wrong with us – perhaps that’s caused our predicament? The ancient teachings of Buddhism however point us towards a different understanding of our selves. In this Facebook livestream, you’ll learn what it means to cultivate a true healing mindset.

A healing mindset is:

• present and powerful

• full of compassion

• ready for laughter

• not based on fear or shame

• generous to others

• inspirational to those around you

This open and free livestream is taught by IDP teacher, Dan Cayer, whose experience with chronic pain inspired him to help others see their situation as workable and potentially transformative. Dan is a trained meditation instructor and Alexander Technique teacher who has also written a book on the pitfalls and profundities of major events like pain and illness: Don’t Get Better: The Secret of a Healing Mindset.

YOUR BODY IS YOUR PRACTICE

Learning to become mindful and familiar with our body sensations and paying attention to our physical reactions can help with stress, pain, and self-acceptance. In this monthly workshop with experienced teacher Dan Cayer, you will learn to activate your body's natural relaxation response through practicing simple techniques. 

Our body can be a source of joy and confidence, and an instrument for pleasure and connection.  But all too often, we experience it as an achy, chubby, worry and tension-filled burden that we try to manage, ignore, or control in the midst of our busy lives.  Research indicates that being with the reality of our present moment body experience, and learning to explore it with patience and kindness, can help everyone find a sense of peace which doesn't depend on pleasant feelings or ideal circumstances.

In this ongoing monthly workshop, we will explore what it means to establish a spiritual and mindfulness practice with the body as a central element.  How can we care for our body without trying to micromanage or endlessly perfect it?  How much discomfort is okay? Can we learn to hear our body's wisdom?

This two-hour workshop will incorporate meditation practice, awareness of emotions, and skills drawn from the Alexander Technique.  Dan's personal experience with debilitating illness enables him to help others meet their experiences with curiosity, humor, and compassion. 

No experience is necessary.  Cushions and chairs will be provided. 

Registration Fees:

  • $20 Students & Unemployed

  • $40 Members

  • $60 Full Fee

CULTIVATING JOY IN URBAN LIFE

Often the greatest challenge of meditation practice, especially in an urban environment, is finding the enthusiasm and drive to establish and maintain a regular daily sitting practice. In our hectic lives it can seem difficult or even irresponsible to take the time to sit quietly, even for short periods, when we have work, family, and many other obligations. City practitioners also may suffer from exhaustion, fears, anxieties, and  burnout - which can be alleviated through the cultivation of joy.  This unique class will help you rediscover a sense of joy - the attitude of delight in our and others' experience. Joy is traditionally considered an essential mindstate necessary to reap the benefits of meditation practice, which include qualities of equanimity, discernment, and compassion. Through guided meditation, experiential exercises, mindful movement, inquiry and discussion, talented teacher Leslie Joren Wagner will lead you to explore, revive, and cultivate the joy so essential to maintaining both a regular daily meditation practice and a balanced, satisfying life.

No experience is necessary.  Please wear loose or comfortable clothing. Cushions and chairs are provided. Beginners are welcome.

  • $30 Students & Unemployed

LIVESTREAM - CULTIVATING A HEALING MINDSET

Livestream Only with Dan Cayer, 1st and 3rd Mondays, 8-9pm

Link: https://www.facebook.com/pg/theidproject/

“Be positive.”

“Hang in there.”

“Don’t worry.”

In the pantheon of well-intentioned but lame advice, ill people have borne the brunt of it. Whether you’re suffering from chronic pain, stress, or just feeling out of sorts, the underlying message from others tends to be that you aren’t trying hard enough. If only you were more disciplined, rational, or grateful, life would be better.

This can lead to an attitude that something is deeply wrong with us – perhaps that’s caused our predicament? The ancient teachings of Buddhism however point us towards a different understanding of our selves. In this Facebook livestream, you’ll learn what it means to cultivate a true healing mindset.

A healing mindset is:

• present and powerful

• full of compassion

• ready for laughter

• not based on fear or shame

• generous to others

• inspirational to those around you

This open and free livestream is taught by IDP teacher, Dan Cayer, whose experience with chronic pain inspired him to help others see their situation as workable and potentially transformative. Dan is a trained meditation instructor and Alexander Technique teacher who has also written a book on the pitfalls and profundities of major events like pain and illness: Don’t Get Better: The Secret of a Healing Mindset.
