What you'll learn in this spirituality class:

With increasing interest in meditation, many people use new methods to acquire meditation skills. Phone apps, videos on YouTube, CDs, and podcasts are supportive. However, the time-honored method is to study with a teacher, in person. Gain the tools needed to start a meditation practice.
Explore the value of a personal meditation practice to add contentment, calm, and compassion in your daily life. 

Vimala, a Buddhist monk, provides meditation basic skills and techniques to inspire and/or renew your current practice. Discover postures and styles of sitting and walking meditation to work with your unique body and temperament. Together, the group will sit for guided meditations working with mindfulness of the breath and body, compassion, and loving kindness.

Time is allotted for questions and feedback on the specific needs or challenges you may encounter. 

Make a personal plan for your practice, based on your lifestyle and intention. Integrate some of the Buddha's advice about the critical aspects of living virtuously. Add wisdom, contemplation, and reflection to your meditation practice to find the clarity and peace you desire.

Some floor cushions are available, but you may want to bring one of your own. You may sit on a chair, if so desired.

Reviewed by Jodi K. on 4/29/2019
The instructor was awesome! It turned into a mini therapy session as we discussed methods to deal with anxiety and fear. Siting and walking meditation were great. Highly recommend!
