The 8 week series will explore a variety of basic meditation techniques that develop a calm and open-hearted approach to living through challenging times and circumstances. The eight sessions will be geared specifically to people who have minimal or no prior experience with meditating, and would like to see how this increasingly popular practice might be beneficial in their own lives. The practice itself is simple, involving learning to pay attention and connecting the mind and body in the present moment. This series runs every Thursday evening from 6:30-8pm beginning September 29th through November 17th.
