We will be exploring meditation on the cushion as well as in daily life. We will work to strengthen our ability to notice and short circuit painful habitual patterns, even as we develop acceptance for the difficult aspects of our personality. Our focus will continue to remain on how we experience this mystery we call ‘life’ and we’ll include plenty of time for questions and sharing.
Each class will consist of a talk, meditation practice, and group discussion. This class is appropriate for new sitters as well as those that would like to re-establish their practice. Bring friends or relatives that have an interest. The class is offered on a dana basis.
