Class Description

Each class is two hours long and broken down into several sections. We begin with an introduction on the topic to be covered. Then we still our minds with a guided 10 minute breathing meditation. This is followed by a 50 minute commentary on the actual meditation practice, then 15 minute guided meditation on the topic, a 15 minute intra-class discussion follows and then we close with 15 minutes for questions and answers.

These classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners.  Each class is self-contained and can be enjoyed on a drop-in basis. No pre-registration is necessary.
