Stay Calm & Carry On: Algonquin Techniques for Inner Peace
A Workshop with author Evan Pritchard (Native New Yorkers)
In this workshop we will learn Algonquin techniques of one-pointed meditation: a focus on one physical object or motion to fill our minds with that pure thought at the exclusion of all others. Once we are free of cluttered thoughts and desires, we can rediscover a fundamental clarity of mind and purpose that shines within us like a still pond. From there, we can dive into that water of serene awareness and see how all life is interconnected. We will explore the seven levels of unfoldment, the four goals of shamanism, the four paths to fearlessness, and the four gifts of our birthright, the benefits named in traditional Algonquin teachings. We can become fearless and open to profound flashes of insight into how to resolve our own conflicts and help others resolve conflicts as well. This is a participatory workshop that includes several meditations and discussion portions. Evan will also be happy to sign any of his books following the workshop.

Cost: $20 if registered and prepaid by Jan. 24th; $25 if registering after the 24th.
