    Learn to Meditate is now free to all participants! This online introduction to meditation is ideal for beginners, or anyone looking to refresh their understanding of mindfulness meditation practice. 

    Led by a qualified Shambhala Meditation Instructor, this 45-minute session presents the view and technique of mindfulness-awareness meditation, a helpful coping mechanism in this time of anxiety and uncertainty. 

    Each class features complete instructions on working with posture, breath, and thoughts, as well as an opportunity to ask questions. 

    Through synchronizing mind and body in meditation, we create the foundation for a sane and balanced life.
