The focus of this course is not only on the technique of mindfulness meditation, but how meditation fits into the practical understanding of Buddhist teachings.
The good news is that we can train the mind to be happy, and mindfulness meditation is a skill to help achieve that. Also, if we train ourselves in other aspects of Buddhism, such as generosity, compassion and wisdom, then our mindfulness will be strengthened. This course plants the idea that by training in these interconnected skills wholly, we may start to develop some happiness in our everyday life.
Both beginners and experienced meditators are welcome. All attendees are encouraged to complete the entire course. Guided meditations will be taught in each session, and questions that you have about your individual experience are encouraged to help develop and refine your practice. If you’ve been curious to learn about mindfulness meditation, and/or want to deepen your practice and understanding of Buddhist philosophy, this course should be of interest to you.
