Join us this fall for this introductory Learn to Meditate series! Learn the art of meditation and bring a sense of balance, peace and clarity into your life and relationships.

This series is designed especially for beginners (or for those who wish to revitalize their practice). In this course you will learn the essentials of meditation practice and the Buddhist approach to training the mind. Each class will include guided meditation, a talk and a chance to ask questions. Everyone is welcome.

Level 1 and Level 2 are each presented as a series, however, each class is self contained so you can drop-in any week for $12/class, or register online for $40 for a 4 week series.
