“Meditation is great, but I could never do it.” Sound familiar? Sometimes it feels like our mind is more wild and untamed than everyone else. Sometimes we feel like our mind is just too discursive for practice. Obstacles are natural. Experiencing obstacles really means that we are trying to work with our mind. Our lives are accustomed to speed and entertainment, so it’s no wonder our mind often feels overwhelmed. This workshop will explore the laziness and speedy-busyness we face in all aspects of life. By acknowledging obstacles on the cushion, students will learn how to set intentions and approach daily life with a fresh perspective.

As part of our “Learn to Live Mindfully” series, this program includes:

    •    Guided meditation practice.
    •    Mindfulness meditation talks
    •    Body awareness exercises.


We have a generosity policy to make our offerings available to all who wish to participate. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please consider what works for you, and offer as much of the program fee as you can. For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a "patron price". Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the cost for others who are not able to pay the full price.
