Transforming the Judgmental Mind: Urban non-residential


Judgments of a reactive nature are very strong in most of our lives, and in the dominant culture.
They can distort our perceptions, make relationships difficult, and undermine our work in the world. In this retreat, we will explore such judgments (and their
difference from non-reactive discernment) and how to transform them.
We will cultivate mindfulness of judgments; inquiry into the deep roots of judgments; and heart practices such as lovingkindness, forgiveness, and compassion. We will also explore the somatic dimension of judgments and how to cultivate skill in interaction in the midst of judgments.
These tools will help us to preserve the intelligence and energy often found in judgments, using them for discernment and compassionate action, while working through judgments’ destructive, compulsive aspects.
The retreat will combine silent practice, guided meditation, short talks, and discussion.
The retreat is for people who sat in a vipassana course before. 
Registration will be opened few weeks before the event
