We humans tend to seek certain kinds of pseudo-refuge in the familiar, in roles and identities that allow us to land in places that are known, seemingly safe and secure. There’s nothing at all wrong with returning to safe harbors, but when we have difficulty finding ease in the gaps between our comfort zones there can be wide swaths of life that become stressful or overwhelming. Depending on how we relate to these “in-between” places, we may be mildly, moderately or severely vexed. Finding ease and freedom in these “in-between” places can be some of the most difficult and important work of our practice. This class will offer support and guidance for how we can “mind the gap,” struggle less and even thrive when we are asked by life to swim in deeper water than we like or are accustomed to. Course “Text”: In Love With The World: A Monk’s Journey Through the Bardos of Living and Dying, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. This book is an intimate, moving and wise account of a monk’s decision to embark on an unconventional four-year retreat, practicing well outside of his known identity, privilege and comfort zones. His generous, candid, clear sharing of his compelling journey shines inspiring, valuable light on how we might navigate our own spiritual journeys.
