In a world where we face ever-increasing busyness, stress and demands on our time, mindfulness practices offer a way to cultivate our inner listening and unearth our core of stillness. Bit by bit, the act of simply sitting still begins to point us through the layers of our own conditioning to wake up more fully to every aspect of our lives and to the world around us.
In this course, you will:
Learn basic postures for sitting meditation
Create intentions to guide your attention
Practice techniques for working with obstacles as they arise
Explore ways to bring mindfulness into our everyday activities
Through this 4-week class, we will draw on the wisdom of the Zen tradition to develop a regular meditation practice with the support of a community of others.
Bring a pen, journal, and a meditation cushion, if you have one.
