Our Thursday class offers step-by-step guidance on the meditation practices that will lead us to lasting inner peace and happiness.
Each class starts with a short guided breathing meditation, a teaching on why your state of mind matters and a concluding meditation to set up your week.
The class is designed for drop-in but greater benefit and understanding naturally arise through coming regularly.
We are often quite passive about our state of mind. If we’re angry, rather than trying to change our anger, we try to change the externals; same with depression, anxiety and so forth. What we really need to do is control our mind, change it from bad states to good, from anger to patience and compassion, and so forth. There are many reason for changing our mind rather than focusing on changing externals, but one thing is sure: we need to use every opportunity to improve our mind! (See below for schedule & topics.)
