MED103 Beginning Meditation: Calm and Clear

A regular meditation practice allows us to become calm and to stay clear. We discover in meditation a foundation for self-development. As we continue to practice, almost imperceptibly the quality of everyday life begins to change. We find that we act with more creativity and care, truly engaged in our own lives and more responsive to others.

Meditation can calm the mind, leading to greater mental clarity, and to insight. Students learn how to foster both through traditional techniques including awareness of the movements of mind, of breath and body, chanting and visualization.

For beginners and those wishing to review basic techniques.

MED305 Advanced Meditation: Flowing Breath, Spacious Compassion

In this class, we will work with breath and traditional practices for cultivating compassion, one of the four immeasurables. These breath practices go beyond merely observing the coming and going of the breath, enabling us to engage with the energy of the breath and its inherent qualities of calmness and stillness. Once these qualities begin to flow through our energy body, we explore the relationship between the inner and outer environments. 

Prerequisite: Three years of meditation experience, or consent of the instructor.
