Cultivating Radical Joy in the Body

  • Tse Chen Ling Buddhist Center 302 Jules Avenue San Francisco, CA, 94112 United States (map)

It seems that joy is in high demand and short supply these days. At the intersections of increasing cost of living, less free time, and an abundance of social and political upheaval, it's not a surprise that many of us are looking for more skillful ways to deal with life's stresses and find more joy.

Like happiness, joy can be illusive. We know what it's like to feel it, but the cause of yesterday's joy might just turn into the cause of today's pain.

The Buddha described this kind of joy as Dukkha, as it is uncertain and in the nature of change.

But what if we could connect with a much deeper and more reliable sense of joy, a type of joy that is unconditioned, innate, and embodied? This is not only possible for each and every one of us, but it is our birthright.

In this workshop, and through periods of meditation, experiential learning, and discussion, we will explore how to access innate joy in the body, learning to meet our embodied experience with more awareness, compassion, and ease.
