Guest Speaker: David McKay
Who are you really? When you set aside all that you were taught to believe about who and how you are, when you disregard all you were taught you should be, what remains? Your life is calling you to answer that question, to continually rediscover who you are—who you truly are. During this workshop we will consider how to live from the clarity of our authentic nature. In particular we will examine how we might how to skillfully navigate through life’s challenges; how to make conscious decisions and know what to do; how to follow Life’s guidance; and other aspects of the path that leads to a clear mind and an open heart.
David McKay entered a Zen Buddhist monastery at 29 and spent the next 18 years training there in silence. Over time he became a skilled facilitator and counselor, offering retreats and workshops at the monastery and across the country. David left the monastery in the fall of 2014 to further explore life and spiritual practice back in the world. He currently supports awareness and personal transformation in the form of retreats, workshops, and one-on-one spiritual mentoring. The skills David offers combine ancient Buddhist wisdom and practice with modern psychological tools in a way that many find to be most powerful and effective. He is a kind, gentle, simple man, and his work is imbued with practical sense and good humor.
