The ability to bring relaxed, focused attention to the experience of the moment is an inborn capacity of the human mind. When cultivated, this capacity naturally becomes stronger and brings an increase in one’s overall sense of ease and wellbeing and a corresponding decrease in levels of stress in daily life.
This course will teach participants how to begin to meditate and will suggest ways to continue developing after the course has concluded. Each class will include a period of guided meditation with instruction, time for discussion, and suggestions for ways to work with your meditation practice at home.

The fee for this course is on a sliding scale from $5 to $25 per class. Participants are asked to commit to being present for all 8 classes unless a planned absence is discussed with the instructor in advance.
