Have you been curious about meditation, but feel intimidated to try it? Or perhaps you are looking to refresh an already established practice.
Do you feel like you have been trying too hard to do the practice of meditation? (Hint, meditation is a practice of Being in our direct experience)
Do you struggle with judging your practice? (Hint, there is no good or bad meditation)
Do you think your practice is not working because life still does not feel easy?
While my life continues to have its ups and downs, this practice has been transformative to my experience. In this afternoon workshop, we will clear some of the lingering misconceptions of meditation practice. I will share with you a high level orientation to the methods, and I will guide you through a ground level, direct experience of what cannot be conveyed in words. I hope to bring the practice of meditation alive for you and to make it accessible in your daily life. Our time will include both group and partner discussion/exploration, as well as receiving multiple guided practices, including a closing iRest® yoga nidra meditation.

Meditation practice is not about trying to throw ourselves away to become something better. It is about befriending who we are already. Pema Chodron
