Realizing Essence through Compassion with David Breaux
Sat Sep 23 2017 10:00 am — 12:00 pm

DavidBreaux

The Crow Collection, Compassionate DFW, and the Compassion Council of the Dallas Arts District present David H. Breaux in dialogue in our galleries.

Please join us for an exploration of how to create more compassion in the world and in ourselves! Join us for a talk and Q&A with David Breaux on realizing essence through compassion. Breaux will share a few words on pure compassion, the recognition of true self, and the sharing of wisdom and will be followed by Q&A. The themes he will touch on include the body-mind nature, suffering, spirit, identification with false thoughts and beliefs, and how to alleviate suffering. 

 

Bio: David H. Breaux compassionately guides people to their ever-present, true Self. In 2009, he began asking people to share their written concept of the word “compassion” in a notebook, receiving over 11,000 responses. In 2014, he traveled for a year on The Compassion Tour, visiting 13 different communities throughout the US asking people about compassion and facilitating compassion discussions. Coming from Davis, California, he now answers questions for those seeking liberation. Through this sharing of wisdom, many feel inspired to make the necessary changes in their lives. Space is provided for people who yearn to alleviate their suffering, bringing about inner peace, openness, grace, joy, and love. Through presence and compassion gatherings, he invokes a stable transformation, compelling others to discover the light within themselves.

Self Care Matters: Ayurvedic Wisdom for the Modern You Series
Wed Sep 27 2017 12:00 pm — 1:00 pm

“The root cause of disease is not listening to the body. Intelligence is the flow of awareness that tells us what we should do and should not do.” – Dr. Vasant Lad

Crow Collection Wellness Advisor Sapna Punjabi-Gupta presents a four-week series offering ancient practices relevant for the modern times. In this series, Sapna will introduce the art of daily healing through Dinacharya or Ayurvedic daily routines. Dinacharya is noticing the rhythms of our body and acting with awareness to maintain balance. It has many lasting benefits and offers a great way to power up one’s day. Join Sapna as she shares simple Ayurvedic daily self-care practices through food, exercise, mantra, and meditation to help establish balance and bring radical changes in our body, mind, and consciousness.

The Art of Aligning Internal Bio-Rhythms with Rhythms of Nature
Wednesday, September 6 at noon

Ayurveda sees everything in the universe, including human beings, as composed of five great elements—space, air, fire, water, and earth—which combine to give rise to three bio-physical forces (doshas) that are present in everybody and everything. Learn about the natural rhythms of the elements and the doshas in the environment, and use the awareness to align one’s own physiology and mindfulness. DON’T miss this first lecture of the series.

Morning Practices – Self Care to Start Your Day Right!
Wednesday, September 13 at noon

Mid-Morning & Afternoon Practices – Self Care to stay Healthy and Alert
Wednesday, September 20 at noon

Evening & Bedtime Routines – Self Care for Sound Sleep

These four lectures will focus on various aspects of self-care practices by helping people understand the Ayurvedic daily clock. Each lecture will include handouts, tea sampling, food tasting, chanting, breathing techniques, and meditation practice as appropriate.

Sapna Punjabi-Gupta, MS, RDN, LD, AP is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Ayurvedic Practitioner, and Culinary Wellness Expert. Sapna combines her Indian roots and her American education and expertise to inspire and educate others to cultivate a journey of wellness. She emphasizes mindful eating, the healing power of food and spices, and several Ayurvedic practices as strategies to improve one’s overall health and wellbeing.
