Introduction to Meditation

with Shastri Marian Bond

The purpose of learning to meditate is to study ourselves and to tame our
own mind.  When we start on the path of meditation we create an
environment that encourages the quality of wakefulness in our being.  It
is present when we pay attention to what is going on around us.  It is
about training our minds to be more focused, to see with clarity, to have
space for creativity and to feel connected.

It has practical implications for our work life – when we are fully
present on the job we are more effective leaders, we make better
decisions, and we work better with other people.  Waking up in our
workplace allows our mindfulness practice to
flow smoothly and we can be of great benefit to ourselves and others.

This two-hour introduction to meditation program is appropriate for anyone
wishing to learn the basics of meditation, as well as for experienced
practitioners wanting to refresh and renew their practice. The program
consists of a talk on the purpose, effects and value of meditation, guided
meditation instruction including sitting and walking meditation, and
finally a group discussion.
