Mindfulness meditation is a proven path to becoming more open, compassionate and relaxed in our ever-changing lives, in this “eternally unfolding moment”. Mindfulness is a technique and practice that we can each develop that brings greater presence, calm, clarity, and ultimately — freedom, into our experience.
In this five week course, we will examine and practice the techniques of Mindfulness Meditation in the context of the Buddha’s teachings.
Our focus will be a Solid Foundation: the fundamentals of practice; meditation techniques; working with distractions; lovingkindness meditation; integrating your practice and your life; practicing in community, and more. We’ll alternate practice periods, instruction, Q&A and discussion.
