Sophia’s Well of Wisdom presents, “Vision of Oneness,” at the Spring Weekend Workshop, focusing on meditation. Featured speaker, Eugene Alliende, MA, MFT, a psychotherapist and meditation teacher with training in both traditional psychology as well as transpersonal psychology, practices in Jackson, at Global Healing Arts, and is the author of, “Dimensions of Being: An Explorers Guide to Consciousness.”

On Saturday May 31, Rev. Dr. Patsy Walker Fine introduces the annual meditation workshop with a presentation on, “The Wisdom of Meditation.” Based on both ancient texts and research from contemporary science, participants discover the importance of meditation, and how to develop a sustainable practice. Those needing a basic understanding of the neurobiological, as well as spiritual aspects of meditation will benefit from this class. After learning and practicing spinal breathing — a simple preparation for meditation — participants will learn and practice some techniques from transformation meditation, a method designed to reduce stress, promote health and obtain inner peace, taught at Sophia’s Well of Wisdom.

On Sunday, June 1, Alliende offers a more advanced presentation on, “Living Nonduality.” Participants explore the nature of nonduality through a series of instructions and practices designed to give a genuine taste of that essential reality. Discover how to live from a place of Oneness, while grounding insight into everyday living. Learn, intellectually and experientially, how we are truly connected to All-That-Is in every moment. 

The workshop begins promptly at 10 a.m., and runs to 4 p.m., both days. Registration is at 9:30 a.m. Space is limited. Pre-register by May 24, to secure a place. A light vegetarian lunch is provided, along with water and tea.

Workshops at Sophia’s Well of Wisdom are a service to the community, supported by affordable, good-faith donations. The spiritual center is located at 270A Hanford Street, in Sutter Creek. Call Rev. Patsy at 418-9003, or email, for details.
