There is a fountain of joy inside you.
Of love. Of ecstasy.
In his NY Times bestselling book The Untethered Soul, Michael (Mickey) Singer presents a compelling explanation of why, instead of joy, we feel fear, we feel unease, we don’t feel okay. The reason is we cling to what is pleasant and avoid what is unpleasant. Every time we do that, we create internal blockages. We create so many that we are repeatedly triggered and bothered.
What can you do each day to discover the natural joy and serenity that is within you, always?
. . . Learn to let go of resistance!
The thing is, letting go is hard. It goes against everything we’ve been taught about how to be happy.
In this online info session, Laurie will give an introduction to the Untethered Soul teachings and the 6-week course, including short guided meditations, exercises and Q&A. It’s a great way to learn about the power of letting go.
In the 6-week course we will learn exactly how we unintentionally create blockages and how to practise letting them go. As we practice, more and more we can become the person we want to be.
Teacher: Laurie Arron
Laurie is a long-time mindfulness meditation teacher and a member of Thich Nhat Hanh’s Order of Interbeing. After reading The Untethered Soul, Laurie travelled to the Temple of the Universe in northern Florida to meet Mickey Singer in person. His stays there have given him added insight into how to practice Mickey’s teachings.
Laurie was the Managing Director of the Centre for Mindfulness Studies, and was Director of Advocacy for national LGBTQ equality group Egale Canada, and Executive Director of the Green Party of Canada.
Laurie: “I’ve been teaching meditation for years, but this book and my time spent with its author, Michael Singer, have changed my life. Simply put, I have learned to release my internal blockages, and to free the love, joy and enthusiasm that are always there inside. Some call it Buddha nature, chi, shakti. It’s there. All you need to do is learn to let go of resistance. I encourage you to read the book. And if you like to learn in a more structured and communal way, I’ve created a course that includes reading the book. This allows you to ask questions, get exercises & feedback on your practice, and share with others.”
