Meditation: the Art and Science of Mind Training

ID : 6172   
« back to classes page
For thousands of years, human beings have responded to the challenges of their inner emotional life, and their outer material life, by developing ways to train their heart and mind. Known formally as “mind training,” these techniques reduce stress, increase awareness and concentration, and strengthen our ability to offer kindness and compassion. This class will help you to apply these “mind training” and meditation techniques to a variety of daily situations and major life transitions.

We will begin with a very basic introduction then progress to principles, philosophy, and finally practice. Students will leave with tools for crafting their own personal meditation practice and meditative techniques for facing the challenges of daily life, and increasing their overall wellness.

People from all walks of life are welcome! Please bring a yoga blanket or mat and a sitting cushion if you plan to sit on the floor, and a shawl or light blanket to wear while meditating.

Notice

Please read:  Sunday, March 11 is Daylight Savings - remember to "spring forward"! Please bring whatever you need to sit on. I will be using a thick, Mexican style blanket under my legs, with a dense meditation cushion on top. I recommend this if you are comfortable sitting on the floor. A yoga mat and bolster can work, too. Otherwise, you could use a floor chair, such as a backjack, a meditation bench, or any other type of folding chair that you like. Experiment at home to see what feels best. Some people like to meditate wrapped in a shawl. You are welcome to try this if you like. Parking is enforced 7 days a week on the Cabrillo Campus. Daily parking permits are $4.00 and can be purchased in any of the student parking lots from parking permit dispensers. Daily permits are only good for the date of purchase.
