Why meditate? I can speak from my experience and from witnessing so many others over the years that through meditation practice we become better equipped to handle life’s stresses because we gain more tools in staying in the present, not reacting habitually, realizing when we are losing presence, and choosing to return. We become more curious and less judgmental about ourselves and about others because we have greater awareness of what goes on in ourselves and in the world around us. Pausing and being still allows us to see more clearly, and compassion for ourselves and for others comes more readily.

 

For four weeks, I will give the basic instructions, lead you in a guided practice. We’ll have time for observations and questions and then we will practice again. We will cover guided, silent, loving-kindness, and walking meditations. We will talk through a practice to use when a thought/feeling keeps pulling us out of the present moment and we will cover other daily mindfulness tools we can use. At the conclusion of these four weeks, we can find more opportunities for you to sit with a group on a regular basis. Being in community strengthens our commitment and practice. 

  • Pre-registration requiredLimited to 14 participants

  • Each week you will receive an email recap of what we covered

  • No make-ups or refunds for missed sessions
