Walking Into the Unknown: Buddhist Inspired Lessons on Finding Real Peace in Strange and Uncertain Times focuses on unlocking some our most fundamental anxieties — especially how to live in a world which is not even close to predictable.
Let’s face it. Life is changing…
Only a few years ago, a global pandemic was unthinkable, and we are still grappling with the fallout from it…
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing our lives — and potentially our careers — in ways that are impossible to anticipate…
Our Mother Earth is facing massive changes to her environment — including to such basic things like the weather…
Our global economy is tilting and shifting…
Many of these are brand new experiences that humans haven’t lived through before.
How do we face our lives in the midst of massive and chaotic change?
Learning how to be present — no matter what
For most of us, these changes bring up fear.
“Maybe everything will be horrible!”
We’ve seen the movies… We’ve read the books…
But a more accurate approach would ask, “When has human life not been uncertain?”
When we started building cities and battling each other for wealth?
When every third child died?
When the black plague — a novel contagion — raged through medieval Asia and Europe?
When WWI began?
When the internet overturned the economies of the world?
Let’s face it. Life is change.
The good news is that for thousands of years the wisdom traditions of the East have given us tremendous teachings and practices about how to live a connected, engaged, authentic life…
…even when everything you know is falling apart.
How do we recover from this loss of heart?
Finding our way back to the goodness in our lives requires us to live in a new way.
We can’t be naive. Absolutely not.
But we can let go of what hasn’t been working.
We can embrace and identify with these profound perspective of what life actually is.
And we need to start by letting go of judging ourselves for our pain and confusion.
Kindness is a much stronger approach, and will guide us gently into greater peace and presence.
Open minded and Buddhist-inspired
Using his background as a Buddhist teacher and a student of comparative religions and philosophy, Green Zone Institute Executive Director and Senior Teacher Greg Heffron will guide you through short talks, guided mindfulness meditations and interactive exercises in each 90min session.
Though the course is Buddhist-inspired, we welcome anyone of any tradition — or no tradition! If you’re willing to connect with yourself, you can benefit from this approach — using the methods and models to travel peacefully and joyfully through the rugged terrain of our changing world.
1-on-1 Coaching Session
The course will also include a single 1-on-1 session with Greg where you can ask questions or offer feedback that you don’t feel comfortable bringing up in the sessions. (To be scheduled during the course.)
