January 1 | 10am-4:30pm

Start the new year with one day of contemplation and meditation on what matters most in our life. It is said if you are going to fill a jar, put the biggest stones in first then the sand. If we allow the details to occupy the space of our mind, we can easily neglect the most important things. Let's begin the new year shining the light of wisdom to investigate the real meaning of our human life. Joy follows meaning. Attend online or in person. Replay available for one week.

**Break for lunch**

When we understand karma, we see how to create a better future. Every action we take plants a seed for a future experience. Understanding this helps us to not take things so personally and feel empowered to respond more positively. We can get in the driver’s seat of our life and create the future we want to live.
