Experience the Now through Meditation
Four Tuesdays, 4.1–4.22, 6:00–8:00pm
Join Blessie Selvig for a four-week course providing introductory tools and teachings for working with meditation in everyday life.
Meditation is an opportunity to rest in what we already are—basic goodness, natural peace, and clarity. We can learn to develop friendship with our mind, skill in how to work with speed and difficulty, and a sense of humor. The journey begins by acknowledging the stress and agitation of the discursive, wild mind. The journey continues by slowly allowing that mind to relax within itself; we let go of struggling with ourselves. The way to become familiar with such relaxation is the simple, regular practice of sitting meditation.
Open to anyone wanting to start a meditation or mindfulness practice. Recommended text: Turning the Mind Into An Ally, Sakyong Mipham.
