Introduction to Meditation



Whether you are beginning or deepening a daily meditation practice, you are welcome to join us over the next several months as we study Gil Fronsdal's course, "Introduction to Meditation." Opportunities to meet face to face at Second Saturdays will be combined with an online classroom.

Our next Second Saturday meeting is March 11, 2017. You can email us for more information or to request to join the online classroom.

About the course:
"Several times a year Gil Fronsdal offers a 5 or 6 week instructional series for beginning meditators. These classes provide a good overview of insight meditation practice as well as many guided meditation sessions which help the student learn how to establish and sustain a daily meditation practice." (http://audiodharma.org/series/1/talk/1762/ )
Our goal for Second Saturdays is to provide a consistent place for us to discuss teachings, ask questions, and try strategies that help strengthen our daily practices. We look forward to practicing together!
