A five-week course on Monday evenings, 7-8:30pm, beginning March 16th and ending April 13th, 2020.
At PBC we know how hard it can be to find space in a busy life. And with the world going crazy all around us, well, it’s just tough sometimes… So join us this spring and we’ll show you how to sit, simplify your life and let go a little!
Meditation and mindfulness are powerful agents for change in anyone’s life. We’ll learn to turn away from distraction, and explore finding contentment in the experience of our bodies, hearts and minds.
In this class we will share how the Buddha passed on mindfulness to others, as a living principle, and as a meditation practice. You will learn mindfulness using a meditation that has been shared for thousands of years, based just around your breath! And we’ll show you everything you need to get going as a regular and effective meditator.
Whether you’re just looking to find some peace and stillness in your life, or to directly explore the nature of consciousness and the universe itself, this class is a great way to begin! Start out with your breath with us…
Suitable for complete beginners, or those looking for a refresher. Feel free to wear whatever you are comfortable in. We provide meditation cushions, benches and chairs.
Our introductory meditation classes are by donation. For this five-week course we suggest $50-$100 for the entire course ($10-$20 per evening).
