Offering Mindfulness Meditation
in the context of the Buddha’s teachings
in a welcoming community
Starts January 19, 2017
Mindfulness meditation is a proven path to becoming more open, compassionate and relaxed in our ever-changing lives, in this “eternal unfolding moment”.
The Buddha taught mindfulness as a technique we can each develop that brings greater presence, calm, clarity, and ultimately — freedom, into our experience.
In this five week course, led by Ian Challis, we will examine and practice the techniques of Insight Meditation in the context of the Buddha’s teachings.
Thursday evenings beginning January 19, 2017.
Saturday, February 4, 2017
One of the most common questions dharma teachers hear asked by practictioners is—what is the wisest response to this challenging life situation?
How do I know which choice to make when managing day-to-day dilemmas, and when making more longterm decisions in relationships, in jobs, taking action for social change and in other areas of life? The good news is, a diligent and skillful dharma practice will reliably reveal the Middle Way of wisdom—the still, quiet voice of the heart that creatively, appropriately and compassionately responds.
