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.
