Dharma Sunday – The Practice of Wonder: Finding Joy in Everyday Moments (Hybrid)

Lama Willa Blythe Baker
July 21, 2024

Lama Willa will be teaching this Dharma Sunday online and in person at Wonderwell. 

10:00 am – 12:00 pm ET


Watching a full solar eclipse on the path of totality, encountering a wild animal for the first time, watching lava run down the sides of a volcano…..some moments in this human life take our breath away. We experience the heart-quickening, vibrant joy and surprise that we call “wonder”. Wonder has a way of awakening us to the power and beauty of the this vast world, and helps us break out of the trance of the ordinary.

But wonder also reminds us of something important. We don’t need to be at the top of a mountain peak or in a “new” place to experience it. Wonder is a practice we can cultivate. In fact, the sense of wonder descending upon us in ordinary moments is an outcome a rich practice of meditation.

Join Lama Willa this Sunday to explore how to cultivate wonder as a meditation practice, and how to increase our sense of joy, surprise and curiosity in our everyday life.

These sessions, led by highly trained NDF Dharma and guest teachers, include guided meditation, teachings, and time for discussions.
