Making Friends with the Unknown


In these tumultuous times, when so much has been upended, we cannot rely on our old ways for making sense of the world. We have been forced to admit how little we know about where we are headed and how to shape our lives in positive ways.

Full Presence Mindfulness introduces new ways of knowing, based on waking up to the whole of experience. We can experience the power of full presence even in the midst of confusion and uncertainty. By learning to question our stories and assumptions, we can cut through our negative emotions and concerns, our distraction and anxiety. We can activate a new mind, ready to cope with the chaotic and enjoy the immediate.

This workshop will start with simple yet effective practices for grounding in the moment. From there, we will question our commitment to the stories that shape our lives and explore how to live with the unknown. We will discover the truth of a vital secret: when we are fully present, we can move beyond our own small concerns to work for the welfare of the world.
