Meditation & Mindfulness

Weekly Meditation Programs

Meditation and mindfulness are both ancient practices. Meditation is the practice of focusing the mind. There are many different approaches to meditation from a variety of traditions. Mindfulness is practice of being completely present with conditions as they are without judgement. Both of these practices are often done by setting aside time when we can offer our complete attention. But we can also integrate both meditation and mindfulness into our daily routines, being mindful even as we go about our day-to-day lives. Over time, the power of mindfulness and meditation transform the way we experience our lives, from the most mundane activities to the most profound challenges.

 

Training the mind has countless mental and physical benefits, allowing us to become more focused, manage stress more skillfully, and feel a sense of centeredness and solidity. At the same time, these these practices were originally designed to allow seekers to deepen their spiritual practice and help them achieve the highest spiritual states. They are helpful for everyone, whether you are seeking to lessen your anxiety and stress or whether you want tools to help you on your path to spiritual discovery.

 

Our weekly meditation programs approach meditation and mindfulness from the heart of nondual traditions: from Buddhism to Judaism, mystics from across cultures and times offer similar practices and teachings that help us to turn inward. We discuss practical tools that allow us to quiet the mind, such as paced breathing and mantra, as well as how to address the challenges that arise as you do your spiritual practices. You are encouraged to use these fundamental tools to find and forge your own path as you begin - or continue - your journey of self-discovery. Enjoying the fruits of meditation requires long-term commitment; but we are also cultivating greater capacity for enthusiasm and joy! 

 

Each class includes instruction, meditation, as well as time for questions and sharing. All are welcome from beginners to well-seasoned practitioners. Begin your journey to self-care and join us!
