Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change

Start date: September 7, 2016

End date: September 28, 2016

Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Location: Frederick Meditation Center

4 Wednesdays with Jerry Webster, based on the book by Pema Chödrön. We live in difficult times with uncertainty.  Why shouldn’t we cling to familiar patterns and habits if they provide us some degree of certainty?  Because, as Pema Chodron teaches, that kind of fear-based clinging keeps us from the infinitely more satisfying experience of being completely alive.  The teachings presented in this course, known as the three commitments, which are based on the original teachings of the Buddha, provide a path to enter more fully into one’s life.
