Rain of classes
A reminder about new classes:
Tuesdays: Meditation 101
This class will start again. An introduction to Buddhist meditation, with some discussion. We’ll focus on the “mindfulness-awareness” technique as taught in Tibetan Buddhism. It’s a wonderful style of meditation, and one you can keep practicing for years (forever more or less) and keep learning about it, and deepening it.
(June 12-July 10, 8-915 PM) $75
Wednesdays: Beyond the Basics
This class follows Med. 101. We’ll spend a bit longer meditating. We’ll learn some new meditation practices, including contemplative meditation. You must have completed Meditation 101 to take this class, or have been practicing for a while. This class is required for the third meditation class in the series. Confusing? There are a total of three meditation training classes, beginning with “one oh one.” The third will begin at the end of the summer, or in early fall.

Thursdays: Poetry of the Sages
We’ll meditate some in the beginning of class, and then read and discuss poetry. Authors will come from a wide range of times and places. We’ll explore how magic and wisdom manifest in the written and spoken word. The arts have been a part of the meditator’s path for a long time. As this tradition takes root in the West, art is one area where the wisdom and blessings of the tradition can be uncovered.

As always, there are student and senior discounts. Vets can take class free of charge. No one will be turned away due to financial hardship.
