Awakening Together: The Practice of Relational Awareness ~ A Half- Day Meditation Intensive with Scott Tusa

"Be kind to yourself as you proceed along this journey. This kindness, in itself, is a means of awakening the spark of love within you and helping others to discover that spark within themselves." ~Tsoknyi Rinpoche

“We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

There are many ways to approach the practice of meditation. On the Buddhist path, meditation is a tool to uncover the true peace of our own inner awakened nature. Rather than a “self-help” technique or a limited transactional method, Buddhist meditation aims to cultivate a relational awareness. One where the development of our own inner peace connects into a responsibility and altruism towards others.

Through a combination of experiential learning and meditation, this half-day workshop will explore the intersections of core Buddhist principles and our everyday lives, where integrative meditation practices meet the world around us.


• Learning to connect with the root of meditative awareness.

• Understanding the limitations of “self-help” meditation.

• Working with “overactive judgment” and distinguishing between reacting and responding.

• Connecting meditative awareness into our relationships and the world around us.

• Learning how to connect meditative awareness into compassionate action.
