Applied Meditation Practices: A Taoist Approach

Wednesdays, May 16, 23 & 30
Tibetan House, 4900 Tchoupitoulas Street
Course fee: $60

This 3 module course taught by Stephen Josephs, ed.d and Jose Calderon-Abbo, m.d. looks at meditation as a pathway to feeling fully alive in the midst of life challenges. What are normally considered hinderances can, in fact, be gateways to our ever expanding experience of awareness. The practices you will learn are designed to deepen and stabilize your meditation.

In three successive sessions, we will learn specific sets of meditative skills that we will apply to 1) Pain reduction, 2) Unwanted behaviors and thoughts, and 3) The Paradox of Goal Achievement.

You may recognize this approach to inviting, accepting, and embracing all experience as characteristically Taoist in flavor. It is. Yet its principles are not only consistent with non-dual teaching from many traditions, but with recent discoveries in neuroscience.
