Roaring Fork Insight teacher, Lisa Goddard, offers one-to-one mindful awareness mentoring. These sessions are designed to support individuals as they develop or deepen a daily life practice of cultivating compassionate and wise response to the challenges of being human.
Sessions are 30 minutes and can be scheduled Tues. & Thurs., 8:30AM - 2:30PM MT.
Defining the Path of Mentoring:
A person who aids the development of another may be regarded as a mentor. The foundation of the relationship between mentor and student is the shared commitment to work together to access our innate capacity of inner freedom in any circumstances in which we find ourselves. To surmount any source of suffering, transforming it into a source of growth and strength. Mentoring sessions are established on the conviction that there exists within the lives of each of us, at any moment, inexhaustible reserves of courage, wisdom, compassion and creative energy.
How it works:
Focus is placed on the needs and interests of the student and are customizable to the individual. The following is a general guideline:
- New students sign up for an introductory session to determine if we are a good fit for each other.
- Recurring sessions weekly, bi-weekly or every other week. An initial two-month commitment is recommended.
- The focus is on developing and maintaining a daily sitting practice. Integrating mindfulness, heart practice and the practice of the Dharma into all aspects of a student's life.
- We can meet based on your technology -- Skype, Facetime, Google Hangouts or phone.
The financial aspect and dana (generosity) of mentoring:
As a teacher of Dharma and secular mindfulness the majority of my annual income comes thru Dana or generosity. We all have different financial conditions and my intention is to accommodate everyone I can. I ask each person to consider a range of $50-$250 per session. This wide range allows people to offer what is appropriate for them. This number may also change from session to session. You may at times have some abundance and you will want to give more, at times things may be tight and you may have to offer less.
Please contact me directly if you would like to begin.
Donate for your session(s).
Dana Practice (generosity)
Dharma teachings are offered freely. In the Theravada Buddhist tradition, the teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless.
We practice Dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings, as well as the teacher. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart. If you have benefitted from the teachings you receive, and are moved to give Dana the donation will be accepted with tremendous gratitude.
Your generosity is a gift that supports the teachers, your practice and the spreading of the Dharma to all beings.
