July 12, 2014 – Shift Happens : Mindfulness and Compassion Are Powerful Agents of Brain Change and Spiritual Transformation Daylong with Linda Graham

Please join us on Saturday, July 12th for a day of practice with Linda Graham from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Stanislaus County in the sanctuary, 2172 Kiernan Ave., Modesto, CA.

Mindfulness and compassion practices are among the most powerful agents of brain change known to modern science. We can learn to wisely use Buddhist contemplative practices and tools from modern relational psychology to harness the innate neuroplasticity of the brain to reduce the impacts of stress and trauma, deepen our self-compassion and self-awareness, learn new and creative ways to navigate the twists and turns of life with more calm, courage, and flexibility, and deepen the wise effort that leads to inner peace, equanimity, and well-being.

This day is freely offered to all.  Donations are gratefully accepted to support the teacher and future offerings.  Please bring a vegetarian potluck dish to share for lunch, if you would like.  For the sake of those who may have sensitivities or allergies, please do not wear scented or perfumed products.  Chairs will be available.  There are also a limited number of zabutons and cushions for use. This daylong is suitable for all-levels of practitioners.
