In our technology-saturated “24/7” world it can feel like everything moves too quickly, and you are in a constant and constricting cycle of trying to keep up or catch up. The months roll by and before you know it you are into another year. Meditation practices based in loving kindness can create a place of mental and emotional space, an opportunity to breathe, and foster greater compassion for yourself and others.
Learn to step out of the fray and into the present moment with joy that can help you cope with a stress-inducing environment. Bring meditation practices teaching kindness, compassion, joy and balance into your busy life, helping to cultivate happiness and promote well-being.
Participants will be expected to practice meditation at home and in daily activity between class sessions. Weekly sessions will include meditation instruction, periods of guided practice, and group discussion.
No previous meditation experience is required.
Each participant will receive a copy of Real Happiness by Sharon Salzberg.
Persons with disabilities who anticipate needing accommodations or who have questions about physical access should contact us in advance of the program.
