If one of your new year resolutions is to lead a less stressful, more mindful way of life, this class is for you.

Meditation instruction will be offered every week, as well why and how this may be a transformational life skill. We will meditate together, hear talks by instructors and share our experiences.

You will leave the class with the tools to truly bring Meditation into Your Everyday Life.

While meditation has many proven benefits, establishing a consistent personal practice can be challenging. Our five-week training course Meditation in Everyday Life is designed to help new meditators learn the basics of Mindfulness Meditation practice and bring the benefits to their daily lives.

Through establishing a consistent meditation practice, we learn to relax and simply be with whatever is going on in our lives. Over time, this meditation helps us to cultivate courage, humor, and stability in the face of the daily complexities we all experience – our jobs, relationships, and all aspects of daily life.

Meditation in Everyday Life combines technique and view in a setting of support and community to provide you with all the tools you need to establish a strong and consistent meditation practice.

Throughout the course, we’ll explore the view that creating stability and gentleness in our minds can expand outward to our friends, family, neighbors, and to society as a whole. Topics discussed will include:

Week 1 Peaceful Abiding and Basic Goodness.

Week 2 Mindfulness, Awareness, Gentleness and Working With Emotions.

Week 3 Obstacles and Antidotes: Too Tight and Too Loose.

Week 4 Genuine Heart of Sadness: Developing tenderness toward yourself.

Week 5 Everyday Life and Enlightened Society: How basic goodness can influence our whole world.

 

All are welcome. No prior meditation experience is needed. If you are unable to come for the entire series, drop-ins are welcomed and bring a friend.
