Meditation for Beginners

A Six-Week Class Offered Twice a Year

Carved Buddha

This six-week class series introduces the practice of mindfulness as taught in the Thai Forest tradition of Ajahn Chah.  The class series is offered twice a year—in spring and fall—and is followed by an Introduction to Buddhism class.

Each class consists of one or two periods of guided meditation and a discussion of a variety of topics that help us understand what meditation is and how to practice it.  Participants will be encouraged to establish a regular sitting meditation practice at home.

There is no advance registration; please come to the first evening if interested. This is not a drop-in class. If a participant cannot come to the first class, the latest time to start is the second class. These classes occur on a regular basis so if you can’t make this one, simply check back for future classes.
