Please join us for an evening of instruction, practice and discussion of meditation in the Shambhala tradition. This class is geared to new meditators but will also be informative and beneficial for experiences meditators as well.
Meditation is a natural state of the human mind and body -- at rest, open, alert. Meditation allows us to reconnect with our basic goodness. Undertaken as a steady practice, meditation allows the mind to relax and settle. It encourages our inherent qualities of stability, clarity and mental strength to emerge. Meditation is a path to basic sanity in our world. It is a way to enjoy the journey of life.
