Upcoming Events & Offerings
In this new Lower Lights curriculum, we will focus especially on relationship. How can a mindfulness practice improve the quality of your most important relationships? How can the skill of presence help you navigate conflict and challenging terrain with those you care about the most? How can open awareness unleash new creative possibilities when things start to feel routine, or even stuck?
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 in 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.
