Beginning Meditation

Sundays from 11:00 to 12:00

unnamedWe can make friends with our minds and become present to our lives through working with our breath. In meditation we discover how our conditioned minds work, and thus begin to free ourselves from painful habits of struggle and confusion.  This process enables us to find the fundamental openness, ease, and compassion of our minds, as well as the ability to embrace all aspects of experience in daily life.  This class is designed to help beginners establish an ongoing meditation practice, and will include meditation instruction, guided meditation, brief talks on the philosophy of practice and question/answer. Topics include:

  • Getting to know our minds
  • Meditation and embodiment
  • Gentleness, precision, and humor in practice
  • Working with thoughts and emotions

Date/Time: First 3 Sunday mornings of each month from 11:00 to 12:00

Donations to support the Center are appreciated.
