Introduction to Meditation

Meditation is an ancient technique for making the mind more peaceful and calm. People of all backgrounds and walks of life have discovered the immense benefits of practicing meditation based in Buddhist wisdom in the midst of busy daily life. Through learning this skill we can help reduce stress, improve our concentration, and improve our good qualities such as compassion and patience.

No need to attend each class or preregister, just drop in as your schedule allows. Everyone is welcome!

Class Format

Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation to reduce stress and calm the body and mind. There will then be a short teaching on how to apply meditation to daily life to increase our positive minds and decrease negative minds like stress and anger.
