A four night meditation training series - Monday nights - March 5, 12, 19, 26
At the Buddhist Center - 7:00-8:30
No registration necessary - Requested donation $10/night
On these four evenings of meditation instruction, we’ll learn how cultivating meditative awareness can help create a peaceful mind and joyful heart. The practice of meditation enables us to transform all experiences, even difficult emotions and painful thoughts, into sources of joy. Over the course of these four evenings, we'll explore the landscape of our experience with mindful awareness, learning how to use sights, sounds, sensations, thoughts, emotions, and even awareness itself as supports for meditation.
