Description

There is no question that we have been experiencing a pivotal, paradigm-shifting time for the world, and collectively we will be experiencing its ripple effects for years to come. The collective grief and anxiety of a global pandemic and the impacts of pre-existing conditions such as racism and systemic oppression cannot be underestimated. We have been continually called in and challenged to be in deep and radical relationship to the nature of impermanence. To meet this call, we must lean into practices that can support our moment-to-moment experience. In this experiential workshop you will learn the fundamentals of mindfulness meditation and how to work with whatever arises within your internal experience and to meet the moment with more ease and spaciousness.

Helen Hyun-Kyung Park (LCSW, MFA) is an anti-oppressive psychotherapist and meditation teacher based in New York City. She draws upon her work in the arts, contemplative and somatic practices, family systems therapy, and anti-racist praxis to create a way of working with clients that is integrative, embodied, and holistic. Helen is a practitioner of the Buddhadharma in the Tibetan traditions. She is Director of Community and International Training at the Ackerman Institute for the Family and has a small private practice in New York City.
