Upcoming Events & Offerings
Mindfulness Essentials provides a solid foundation for anyone looking to reap the profound benefits of a mindfulness practice in their daily life. Broken into eight modules with six in-depth guided meditations, this course will lend momentum to your practice whether you are just beginning or have been practicing for many years.
Lower Lights Sangha (Sanskrit for community) gathers once a month at the historic Clubhouse in downtown Salt Lake City. Each month, Thomas hosts the larger community in practices that engage meditative awareness, mindfulness in relationship, and conceptual understanding from the world’s wisdom traditions–touching into the timeless elements of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. After the formal program, people stick around, dance, schmooze, and have a snack generously provided by our members.
We are convening our next Lower Lights Studies to discuss Shinzen Young’s The Science of Enlightenment. In May Thomas conducted a Mindfulness+ interview with Young, who advocates for the marriage of science and contemplative spirituality, a bedrock of the Lower Lights experience.
PARTNERS & COLLABORATORS
Lower Lights is a participant of the Harvard Divinity School’s December Gathering, part of an ongoing research project and action network that identifies religious innovators seeking to revitalize their faith traditions and community leaders seeking to build communities of meaning and belonging.
