Childhood is supposed to be a time of joy, when the simplest things spark happiness and wonder; when our capacity to be in the moment is not hindered by the demands of the everyday world. But many of us have been taught that in order to grow up and become a successful adult, it's necessary to set aside that wonder, that capacity for spontaneous enjoyment, that simple ability to set aside the world and revel in the joy of the moment. Once we let that go in favor of what we have been told we "should" be doing, the world becomes a dimmer, duller place, and what was once life becomes simply existence. In this class, we will explore ways to let go of the expectations in our minds, both those others have imposed on us and those we have imposed on ourselves in the name of adulthood. We will discuss, learn, and discover new ways to find the joy in a moment, to revel in wonder at the magical and beautiful world that surrounds us. We will set aside what our minds and the world tell us we "should" be doing, and allow us to be the simple, joyful, spontaneous people we have forgotten how to be.
