Many of us suffer with perfectionism, and we can bring that into our spiritual practice, assuming that we can use meditation to in some way become more perfect. Of course, we will be disappointed over and over again, as we fail to meet our standards. We can also hold our teachers to some standard of perfection, and be supremely disappointed when they fail us.
How can we hold spiritual practice as skillful practice? A way to practice inclining more toward what is skillful and leads to happiness, while still acknowledging our human imperfections. Can we practice forgiveness and compassion as we and other around us make mistakes?
Let's explore this together on Wednesday, February 19, 7pm.

Guided by the wise and compassionate voices of those who have practiced before us, we will explore the question: “What is insight?” We will also meditate together, cultivating the perception of impermanence as the ground for experiencing freedom.
Join me on Saturday, February 22, 9:00am-12:00pm for a half-day retreat.
