Want to explore the path of meditation and get to know your own mind? Meditation in Everyday Life is an introductory class in meditation for beginners as well as more seasoned practicioners interested in revisiting and deepening their relationship to the teachings and practice. By making a deep connection to the present moment and understanding your mind through the practice of meditation, you learn to make friends with yourself.
This class is the first in a series of five "everyday life" classes and provides students with a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation that can be applied to the complexity of our daily lives. This class is great preparation for our weekend Level One class being taught February 1-2 by Jesse Miller.
