Meetings in Peace~Finding Our True Nature

with Murray Weinstein

Saturday January 12, 2019

230-330pm

Our innermost nature is Peace. Thoughts, emotions, and circumstances—positive and negative, arise, appear in, and collapse back into an ever-present background of peace. Thoughts, emotions, and circumstances arise in, but never disturb or damage this background of peace.

The opportunity of recognizing this peace is always available but not generally taken.

The purpose of this meeting is to take some time to avail ourselves of this opportunity.

In recognizing this Peace we may come to love it. And in loving it we may find it natural to appreciate a turning of attention toward this Peace more and more.

These meetings typically include a combination of sitting quietly, dialog and guided meditation. (There is no physical practice during this meditation.)

Murray Weinstein—My story:

Beginning in mid adolescence and continuing into my twenties I was often aware of a vague sense of dissatisfaction. Although the externals of my life were comfortable by most standards this sense persisted. Additionally, the normal ups and downs of interpersonal relationships were often accompanied by negative emotional reactions that were quite uncomfortable. At some point it occurred to me that emotional discomfort would generally arise in response to a situation that I was not, somehow, big enough to handle. I concluded that if I could grow and expand psychologically and emotionally that I would reach, or at least approach a psychological/emotional state that was mature enough and expansive enough to be able to meet the ups and downs of life without responding with such emotional discomfort.

This conclusion led me to a path of self-improvement, primarily within the context of an Eastern spiritual framework and more specifically within a yogic paradigm that lasted for the next 25 years. During this period I did in fact become a more expansive person and this did lead to a diminishment in emotional suffering. In other words, this practice worked to some extent.

In my mid forties I entered into a period of intense emotional turmoil. Life was presenting me with issues that were extremely emotionally painful and this went on for a few years. During this time I worked hard to solve external problems that were contributing to this emotional environment. This work included attempting to make adjustments to the circumstances I was in, as well as continuing the spiritual practice I had already undertaken. Although I never fully accepted the notion of reincarnation, it was part of the yogic paradigm I was involved with and hence a part of my thinking. I can remember standing in my kitchen one evening and the thought occurred to me that I could continue to expand and improve as a human being for the next ten thousand years and I would still not be so improved and expanded that I would be able to solve the problems that were confronting me. I realized that I, the limited person called Murray, would never be so perfected that it could do the job of handling life in the way I had hoped it could be handled. This recognition lead to a deep surrender in which I gave up on myself as being the vehicle that was going to solve life’s problems.

A few months later I met a spiritual teacher who guided my awareness directly back upon itself towards its source. In meeting this source I was meeting unbounded peace, contentment and impersonal intelligence. I could see that this source had more value than I, Murray, had, and because I could see that value I have never fully turned away from that source.

Meetings in Peace is an invitation to rediscover that source which is already, always present within us.

Yoga and Nutrition ~ The Importance of Gut Health

Saturday, January 19, 2019

1-330pm

With yoga instructor Julie Leatherbarrow and registered dietitian Natalie Robertello

This workshop will begin with a 75 minute All Level Gentle Yoga class, led by Julie Leatherbarrow. This class will focus on increasing awareness in the core. A strong yet supple abdomen is crucial as it relates to gut health. Chairs will be provided for those who prefer to use one for this practice.

After the yoga practice, join us for a nutrition talk by Natalie Robertello, a local Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist, on the importance of gut health. Your gut is full of trillions of bacteria that play a major role in digestion, immunity, and production of nutrients and hormones. Learn about what you can do to optimize your gut, as well as improve overall health and energy level. A snack will be provided. 

Natalie Robertello, owner of Fit for You, is a registered dietitian located in Buffalo, NY. Natalie’s nutrition philosophy is to help clients find a healthy relationship with food through a balanced approach. She holds a Master’s Degree in Nutrition and is a Board Certified Specialist in Sports Nutrition, one of the few that hold this specialty certification in WNY.

Women’s Belly Dance with Jarin Weinstein

Saturday, January 26, 2019

1-2pm

Join this 1-hour workshop to shake the winter blues!

Belly dance is a fun and joyful art that both lifts the spirits and energizes the body-mind. This Classical Belly dance style is designed for every women, every body type, and is taught to all levels.  We will dance to traditional Belly dance rhythms. Belly dance is a positive and wholesome way to feel beautiful. A healing and transformation will happen as the dancer taps into her inner power and she experiences the dynamics of being fully in control of each dance move and yet she is fully surrendered to the natural feelings of joy that this dance encompasses. This is not taught for performance, it is simply a way to experience joy and energize the body through lively, poetic music and an ancient dance that lies in the heart of women. This is a friendly atmosphere and is intended to bring women of all ages together as a community, which thrives on love and respect for what makes us unique and similar.
Teacher Jarin Weinstein has formally trained in classical Belly dance for over 10years.

Registration deadline: Friday, January 27, 2019
