It is said that patience comes from our meditation practice. Through sitting we learn to be patient with ourselves, our thoughts, our body and what is happening around us. We will begin this two-hour class with a sitting meditation; from that silence and peace we will continue with the teachings and discussions. .
"By accepting the agreeable and disagreeable aspects of life, we are no longer limited by our longing for life to be different than it is. We have all the time in the world, in the spaciousness of every moment."
- Michele McDonald, from "Finding Patience," Tricycle Summer 2004
