4 Week Course + One Saturday
Thursdays, April 16, 23, 30 & May 7 — 7:00 to 9:00 pm
Saturday, May 9 — 10:00 am to 2:00 pm

The Path of Mindful Activity (POMA) is the integration of formal meditation and study with the activities of daily life. It is what we as practitioners aspire to demonstrate every day; to feel the positive effects of the dharma in our relationships and throughout our lives. The question for many of us is how to develop this skill. The course uses a combination of teachings, activities and reflections that enable us to take our understanding to a deeper level and make it applicable to our lives. The activities that we explore in class are influenced by traditional contemplative practices like Japanese flower arranging and tea ceremony.

Join Rosemary Bakker and Allan Novick as we delve into POMA’s rich materials and exercises that encourages taking awareness into all aspects of life.

Cost:  $75 for the course, includes POMA course materials.
