Welcome. In the 21st century we have an ocean of resources. We’re not lacking information, knowledge, or wisdom. What we need is a mind that is capable of processing it all.

Have a Date with Your Mind—Beginning Meditation

The five-session Beginning Meditation class introduces those new to the practice of meditation to basic techniques for developing a calm body and a steady mind.

We 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 meditations, brief talks on the philosophy of practice, and question & answer.

Topics will include:

  • Getting to know our minds
  • Meditation and Embodiment
  • Gentleness, Precision and Humor in practice
  • Working with thoughts and emotions
