This six-week workshop style course will be based upon the book “HOW TO MEDITATE,”

by Ani Pema Chodron.  

 

It will consist of guided meditation instruction, practice, presentations, questions and discussion. This course will provide the key foundations to a genuine meditation practice, including:

 

• The basics of meditation, from getting settled and the six points of posture to working with your breath and cultivating an attitude of unconditional friendliness;

 

• How moments of difficulty can become doorways to awakening and love;

 

• The key points of "shamatha" (or calm abiding meditation) which is the art of stabilizing the mind to remain present with whatever arises;

 

• How thoughts and emotions released in meditation can be experienced as opportunities for opening further instead

of as obstacles;

 

• Receive email and support during and after the series is completed;

 

• Pre-requisite for Part 2;

 

• Book sold separately at The Center Bookstore.
