Contemplative Inquiry: When Knowing Becomes Love

A Small Group Meditation Workshop with Arthur Zajonc

_

Arthur Zajonc brings the fruits of his many years of contemplative practice and teaching; he began his own practice of meditation over 35 years ago about the same time he started his study of physics.  Arthur is at the forefront of integrating the insights of contemplative practice and inquiry with the rigors of academic study.

“The true goal of contemplative practice, indeed of life, is the joining of insight and compassion, wisdom and love.

To accomplish this requires that we find deep peace within and learn to be evermore awake, and thereby be of greater benefit in all we undertake.”

Come and participate in this unique opportunity to work with Arthur in a small-group setting. Potluck lunch to follow.
