Beginning Insight Meditation

This class will lead students step by step through beginning insight meditation and related mindfulness practices. We will share ways to work toward becoming more present with our experience, explore how mindfulness may enrich our daily lives, and investigate ways of applying practices to difficulties with stress that we experience. Although historically the techniques come from Buddhist traditions, this course has no religious content and will approach the practices from a down-to-earth, secular perspective. The class is intended mainly for persons with no previous meditation experience, but all are welcome. Wear comfortable clothing.
