Introduction to Practice Workshop

May 4 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Buddha statue with flowers

with Chris Freypons and Jackie Carroll

This workshop will offer beginners (as well as experienced meditators) an opportunity to try various postures suitable for prolonged meditation. We will offer guidance on how to choose and work with an effective object of meditation. And we will cover how to do walking and standing meditation as a way to help us transition from the stillness of sitting to our life in the world.

There will also be guidance in the practice of Metta—the cultivation of Goodwill. Metta can help us unlock emotional obstructions and the accompanying mental patterning that hinders insight.

NOTE: Please bring two blankets (heavy cotton) to use as support.
