"By making a deep connection to the present moment and understanding our mind through the practice of meditation, we learn to make friends with ourselves…"

We are living in extraordinary times. The level of uncertainty is high and many of us are experiencing stress, confusion and fear as we shelter at home. How can we stabilize our thoughts and emotions? And how can we satisfy our yearning to help, to be a part of society? This challenging moment could be the perfect time to develop or stabilize a meditation practice.

While meditation has many proven benefits it is important to establish a consistent personal practice. This five part course is designed to help new meditators learn the basics of mindfulness meditation practice and how to bring its benefits into their daily lives. It is also helpful for more experienced meditators in stabilizing and deepening their practice and daily discipline.

By combining technique and view in a setting of support and community Meditation In Everyday Life provides you with all the tools you need to establish a strong meditation practice.

By establishing a consistent meditation practice, we learn to relax and simply be with whatever is going on in our lives. Over time, meditation helps us cultivate stability, gentleness, humor and courage in the face of all the complexities we experience -- our jobs, relationships and all aspects of daily life – so that we can bring sanity, clarity and compassion into our world, expanding outward to our friends, family, neighbors and society as a whole.

Meditation In Everyday Life consists of 5 classes addressing the following areas:

Class 1: Peaceful Abiding and Basic Goodness
Class 2: Mindfulness, Awareness and Gathering the Mind
Class 3: Obstacles & Antidotes: Working With Thoughts
Class 4: Genuine Heart of Sadness
Class 5: Everyday Life and Enlightened Society

Give yourself the gift of meditation and infuse your life and the lives of those around you with compassion, caring and kindness.
