Beginning Meditation: A Six Session Class

6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

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 time. Topics will include:

-Getting to know our minds
-Meditation and embodiment
-Gentleness, precision, and humor in practice
-Working with thoughts and emotions

The suggested donation for each class is $5, but no one is turned away for lack of funds. If you would like more information, please email

What to bring
Bring your own cushion if you prefer it, but we provide them as well. We remove our shoes, so you may want to wear warm socks. The room can sometimes be cool, so layers can be helpful.
