Let Go: An Introduction to Meditation
Saturday, November 10, 2018
Guest Instructor, Daniel Chamberlin
Investment: $25, Preregistration required.
The benefits of a mindfulness practice have been well-known to humans for thousands of years, yet it can still be difficult to find our way into a regular meditation schedule. How long should we sit? Should we sit in silence, or with a soothing voice to guide our minds? Where should we put our hands? How do we know if we're getting it right?
This Introduction to Meditation workshop will address some of those questions, and give curious students the opportunity to explore several forms of meditation. This workshop is modeled after traditional Zen meditation retreats: We'll start off with a casual discussion of form and a 20-minute guided meditation. This sitting meditation will lead to a short walking meditation period and a 45-minute Yin yoga practice. We'll close the workshop with a 20-minute silent meditation and conversation.
This workshop is open to all students, regardless of experience level. Comfortable, loose-fitting clothing is recommended.
