What you'll learn in this meditation class:

Understanding how to cultivate and sustain appropriate attention, both on and off the meditation cushion, is essential in recognizing not only the origins of stress in our busy and demanding lives, but also skillful ways to reduce that stress. However, many of us here in the West come to the cushion with great expectations and quickly discover that we first need to remember how to relax. SCIENTISTS HAVE PROVEN that meditation not only reduces stress. It also helps you in these ways:
  • Strengthen the immune system.
  • Increase heart health.
  • Reduce high blood pressure.
  • Slow biological aging.
  • Strengthen coping skills.
  • Sleep better.
  • Better manage pain.
  • Heal more quickly.
  • Help you create positive behavior changes.
  • Achieve a greater sense of overall well-being.
This Workshop is open to all--from beginners to long-time meditators and is an opportunity for you to extend your practice over a few hours. The theme will be "Connecting the Moments." That is, intentionally cultivating and sustaining a focused attention on sensations in the body as we mindfully transition from one posture to another; sitting/kneeling; standing; walking; reclining and gentle stretching. This four-hour retreat is crafted to be deeply relaxing, not to push our limits in one posture or another.

Come to share meditation practice and get your questions answered. Explore new mindfulness techniques that will help you experience greater calm and healing. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. Chairs, cushions, blankets, kneeling benches and props are available, but feel free to bring your personal sitting cushion.
