If you are curious about the very basics of Buddhism – what is it? how might it apply to your life? – and you also wish to either learn about meditation in general or improve on your current meditation practice, join us for our monthly Fundamentals of Buddhist Meditation course where we will lay it all out for you.
Session 1: Introduction to Buddhism 10:00 – 11:15 am
In Part I of the course you will learn the fundamentals of Buddhist view and how applying these insights in your daily life will increase your ability to navigate relationships skillfully, remain calm even in the face of turbulence, and to enjoy a deeper sense of well-being and happiness.
Session 2: Introduction to Meditation – a Workshop 12:15 – 1:30 pm
In Part II we will explain the basic nuts and bolts of meditation, from why we would want to meditate to the “technical” matters of how to do it. What do we focus on? How long do we meditate? What are some techniques to help us overcome distractions? We guarantee you will emerge from the Workshop a wiser and more skilled meditator!
The workshop includes guided meditations and plenty of time for questions.
Everyone is welcome.
