This dharma talk by Larry Ward addresses America's legacy of racial promise and dysfunction from a unique, relevant, and powerful perspective based on Buddhist psychology. This talk will explore the depth of conditioning within our collective dispositions and the path to their healing and transformation. The talk will begin with a guided meditation led by Peggy Rowe-Ward. Larry and Peggy, dharma teachers in the Thich Nhat Hahn tradition, are leaders of The Lotus Institute in Southern California. Besides the evening at Heart of Wisdom, they are also offering a Thursday evening talk ("True Goodness") and a Saturday workshop ("Living Buddha and Living Christ") at Friends of the Dhamma. Please visit their web site for more information on those off-site events. Event is free; donations welcomed! http://www.facebook.com/events/227648500906119/

Led by Denise Gour, LCSW and Ed Gensho Welsh This workshop introduces mindfulness practices proven to sustain a successful recovery from addictive behaviors. Throughout the day we’ll learn the science behind the practices as well as experience their impact first hand. We’ll also explore and increase our awareness of triggers, habitual patterns, and “automatic” reactions that increase relapse risk. Using tools directly drawn from the evidence-based 8-week program, Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention, we’ll experience the ability to pause, observe present experience, and bring awareness to the range of choices in each moment. Everyone is welcome. Suggested donation includes a vegetarian/vegan lunch. No one turned away for lack of funds. Your RSVP helps the cooks know how much lunch to prepare. http://www.facebook.com/events/1650690975173454/
