For mindfulness meditation to be successful, it is important to be regular and steady, precise and relaxed. When we meditate like that, we naturally experience its amazing power to settle the body and mind in a balanced state of ease and clear awareness. When we find that balance, it brings a tremendous sense of well-being, clarity, and appreciation for the simplicity and peace of the present moment. lake and mountainsNot only does our meditation become a welcoming oasis, but we find ourselves more relaxed and clear even when engaged in the normal, daily chaos of our life. In this course, we’ll focus specifically on training the faculty of attention in the skill of ‘peaceful abiding’. We’ll explore some of the contemporary scientific research — and learn how to extend mindfulness into daily life.

This course is designed to support a developing mindfulness practice. Each week we will explore topics relevant to the practice to guide and confirm student experience. Classes will include guided meditation, talks, exercises and discussion. The class format offers opportunity for personal guidance from a qualified teacher as well as for sharing experiences with others in the class.

Every class will be recorded and made available on a weekly basis to all registered students for listening and downloading via the internet. Participants are encouraged to use the recorded meditations for daily practice and to re-listen to the classes. With weekly recordings, you never have to miss a class.

I am really grateful for this teaching. I have been longing for a non-denominational approach to spirituality that is practical and that I can relate to. This course has been very satisfying and I look forward to more like it! Thank you.Past Course Participant
