Learn to Meditate!On Tue, 24 March, 2015 - 20:42
We have two opportunities to learn traditional Buddhist meditations in April. These meditations lead to greater calmness and sensitivity, deeper levels of relaxation, transform negative emotions into positive ones, and help keep all things in perspective. Suitable for all levels of experience. You do not need to be a Buddhist to practice these meditations.
Thursdays, April 9-30th, 7-9 pm - Four Week Meditation Course
In this four-week course you will be introduced to the practice of an ancient Buddhist meditation that develops mindfulness through maintaining awareness of the breath.
Saturday, April 18, 10-1 pm - Day Workshop introducing Mindfulness of Breathing
Come and learn a foundational mindfulness meditation practice that you can build on and deepen for years to come. Offered by donation, $40-20.
When you learn to meditate with us, we offer instruction in:
• finding an alert and comfortable meditation posture
• body awareness
• how to work with the mind in meditation
• how to maintain a regular and effective practice
• how to maintain mindfulness off the cushion
• higher states of consciousness
