Why Meditate?

Wednesday September 6th

7:00 pm – 8:45 pm

This class will present the basic benefits of meditation, why it’s worth your time and what you might expect to get out of the practice.  We will not discuss How to Meditate (see our intro class on subsequent Wednesdays) but Why to Meditate.

Designed for relative beginners and newcomers, although experienced practitioners might enjoy an infusion of motivation and will be invited to share their thoughts.

All are welcome!

Introduction to Meditation

Three Wednesdays:

September 13, 20, & 27

7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

In these challenging times, meditation can help to calm the mind, open the heart, and awaken wisdom.
This three week series will introduce newcomers and relative beginners to the four foundations of mindfulness and the practices of calm-abiding (shamatha), spacious awareness and loving-kindness.  We will practice together through guided meditation followed by a short discussion.

Taught by Susan Morgan, leader and co-founder of the Dharmata Shangha.  You can learn more here.
