A one-hour class on the basics of meditation, and how to establish a regular meditation practice at home. All are welcome.


Meditation is a means to train the mind in awareness. It is a deliberate training of attention that awakens us beyond the conditioned mind and habitual thinking and reveals the nature of reality. There are many forms of meditation—a variety of skillful means to quiet the mind and open the heart. There are countless contemplative practices, devotional practices, concentration, mantras, visualizations, energy training, and inner listening practices to foster awakening, understanding, kindness, and compassion.


Some of the benefits of meditation include stress relief, decreased anxiety, pain reduction, increased concentration, mental clarity as well as the cultivation of a sense of inner peace, wellbeing, and compassion. 


"To meditate is to discover new possibilities, to awaken the capacities each of us has to live more wisely, more lovingly. more compassionately, and more fully. ~ Jack Kornfield
