Workshops for Africa
We have a goal to raise a thousand $80 donations, one for each child in our project in Kantolomba.
Many of you have generously contributed to the project through the Having Fun email class. Following up on the theme of fun, we created two more workshops to raise funds for the kids. There is no minimum donation for these workshops. The total will be divided by 80 and added to our fundraising goal of a thousand $80 donations.
SPECIAL NOTE: These workshops follow themes that might be helpful to those not engaged in this particular Practice. You are welcome to invite friends, family, co-workers and supporters of the project to sign up. Their participation can be a way for them to support the project in Africa.
This society conditions the mind to a particular pattern of thought, the pattern of self-improvement, self-adjustment, self-sacrifice, and only those who are capable of breaking away from all conditioning can discover that which is not measurable by the mind.
— J. Krishnamurti
Because of the endlessly varied content of life (job, relationship, finances, leisure, chores, planning, getting somewhere on time), we don’t see the truth of the adage “how you do anything is how you do everything.” If we pay attention at all, we see that despite the variation in content there are similarities in what we say, think and feel. The constant across all relationships, situations and interactions is “me.” We don’t seem to be able to escape ourselves, but we continue to believe that the “problem” with it all is “out there.”
Enter process mapping.
It is challenging to make sense of random bits of information, and easier when we see a pattern. Process mapping is a tool for bringing into conscious awareness subliminal patterns we experience as “just me living.” More often than we would like to believe, what controls our actions and life experiences is our conditioning. Process mapping helps us see the scripts, programs and patterns that are always operating on us, influencing who and how we are. By capturing the entirety of the pattern and seeing it in its totality, we can be more at choice in our lives.
The workshop will be offered on two Sundays.
The first workshop is how to create a process map. Whether you are a dab hand at process mapping or this is your first taste, you will benefit from working with this powerful tool of awareness.
The second workshop is how to apply to daily life the insights the map reveals.
