SUNDAY MORNINGS

Meditations for World Peace

with Chris Taylor

A Drop-in Meditation Class Series

Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. When we create peace within our own mind, the effects are far-reaching and bring benefit to everyone we meet. In this class, we are creating the causes to abide in a more peaceful world by cultivating our own inner peace, developing compassion, and increasing our wisdom.

 

Each class includes two guided meditations, a talk, and inspiring prayers for world peace. 

 

This class is suitable for all levels of experience and everyone is welcome. 

Sundays, 10:30 – 11:45pm

THURSDAY EVENINGS

Simply Meditate: Weekly Guided Meditations

with Steve Tuscher

A Drop-in Meditation Class Series

The first stage of meditation is to stop distractions and make our mind clearer and more lucid. This can be accomplished by practicing a simple breathing meditation. Just by doing breathing meditation for 10 or 15 minutes each day, we will experience a calm, spacious feeling in the mind and many of our usual problems will fall away.

 

Join us each week for a different guided visualization and meditation. This is a wonderful series for beginners, or a good way to get your daily practice back on track. Each class is taught on a drop-in basis. Everyone is welcome! 

Thursdays, 6 – 6:45pm

$10 per person

Included in all membership levels
