A seminar on the Five Vital Wisdoms with Irini Rockwell.
In Relating, Communicating & Cooperating
Engaging in the Challenge and the Opportunity
Have you noticed that mystery underlies all your relationships? Have you wondered why they are both predictable and surprising? Why you feel awkward or comfortable, tense or friendly, aggressive or engaged with different people? Why with some you become confused and with others awakened?
The teachings on the Five Wisdoms contain great insights into human dynamics. First, that you need to know yourself, where you shine and where you get stuck. Then you can discover the dynamics of how you interact with others. This can bring about deeper self-awareness and more authentic communication. Moments in your relationships—with romantic partners, family members, and coworkers—become opportunities to align with your inherent sanity, rather than perpetuate your mutual confusion and conflict. Instill a motivation to have more conscious and genuine relationships!
We will do meditation, posture practice, and a profoundly transformative interactive practice to cultivate unbiased perception and heart-felt resonance with others. We become able to see and feel another in both their confusion and intelligence, without assumptions, interpretations, and judgement. The practice of tonglen, compassionate exchange, is introduced. Open to those both experienced and new to the Five Wisdoms.
