Unpacking the Heart Sutra with Michael Aronoff
Saturday, February 3 | 1:30- 3:30 p.m.
Translated as the “Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom”,
This sutra is chanted and meditated on throughout the world. It is considered a summary of all Buddhist thought and teachings and is often said to contain the entire meaning of all of the longer Sutras.
In this sutra, Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva is speaking to Shariputra, a Buddha disciple. The sutra discusses the five skandhas — form, sensation, conception, discrimination, and consciousness. The bodhisattva has seen that the skandhas are empty, and thus has been freed from suffering. Join Michael as he unpacks the deep meaning of this sutra and activate the sutra’s benefits into your life.
Sound Activation Meditation with Mary Grey
Saturday, February 17 | 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies.Everything in the universe vibrates at it’s own unique frequency called a resonant frequency. This includes all the cells, tissues, and organs of our bodies. Aliments arise as result of a disturbance in these frequencies. Through the concept of resonance and entertainment, sound can be utilized to bring our bodies back to optimal frequencies.
