Introduction to Meditation Course

Introduction to Meditation, a 6 week course

March 8, 15, 22, April 5, 12, 19
Wednesdays: 7:45 – 9:00pm

Meditation is a wonderful way to begin to understand your own mind, live more authentically and begin to create peace within yourself and with those you come into contact with everyday. There can be many benefits from meditation, both physically and mentally.

We welcome you to join us for these 6 weeks of meditation training. The course is designed for those with no meditation experience or those who want to further enrich their practice. Each class will include short talks, meditation practice, and periods for sharing your experiences and asking questions.

We will be using the book, Mindfulness in Plain English by Bhante Henepola Gunaratana as the core of what is being shared. Reading can enrich your experience, but reading is not required to benefit from this course. During the course, there will also be readings from the Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha’s discourse on mindfulness meditation.

There is no fee for this course, but donations to the Yellow Springs Dharma Center are appreciated. This course will be taught by Linda Potter.
