Contemplative Psychology is a path of self-healing and personal transformation by exploring our relationship with space and discovering the innate potency of our hearts. We will explore the foundation principles and practices of contemplative psychology:

  1. Sanity is our birthright
  2. The Practice of Compassionate Exchange and the Five Buddha Families
  3. The Inseparability of Wisdom and Confusion

This course combines meditation, short talks and experiential work. Two private interviews with Acharya Moore are included in the course. Participants work in a safe container of confidentiality with the poignant issues in their lives. This course is not intended as therapy – more a study group for awakening to our brilliant sanity. 

There will be optional sitting meditation before each class beginning at 6:30.

The course is appropriate for beginning to advanced meditators.

As always, the Generosity Policy applies.
