Introduction to Meditation: 6 Week Course
Meditation is a simple, but life transforming skill. By strengthening your attention, meditation can help you develop a deep understanding of your inner self. The practice of meditation can also strengthen your ability to recognize your true potential.
While many of us know that meditation is beneficial we may struggle with posture and other basic components of a sitting practice.
In this step by step beginner class you will become familiar with basic techniques to help facilitate your practice of mindfulness meditation, so that you might begin or extend your practice on surer footing.
Using a chair is encouraged for those who are uncomfortable with being on the floor. Each class will also include deep relaxation to help foster stress reduction.
Chairs are available in the Chrysalis Gathering Space.
Participants are asked to bring two blankets with them to each class.
