Introduction to Meditation
A six week workshop – taught by Joanne Chase
Meditation is well recognized for providing many physical and psychological benefits.
Various forms of meditation can help to relieve tension and stress,
heal emotional and physiological pain, enhance relaxation, reduce obsessive thinking, lessen anxiety and depression, and promote a sense of well being.This workshop will study the technique of
mindfulness – or bare attention. This gentle practice is profoundly sophisticated and highly accessible, beautiful in its simplicity, and deeply rewarding to those who commit to its practice.
Mindfulness is one of the cornerstones of the Buddha’s legacy, and is easily integrated into everyday life. It helps maintain clear seeing, wise decision making, and a loving heart. Come learn and practice this simple and profound technique. Participants will be guided in meditation while sitting and walking, questions and common obstacles to practice or progress will be explored, and instruction provided with an emphasis on how to establish a regular mindfulness practice.
