Here is what’s coming up for the next months with each presenter’s topic.
April through May - Since meditation is a "practice," not a "perfect," we are never too advanced to revisit the basics of this important activity. This is where we will begin this series, but we will quickly become quite sophisticated while making advanced techniques easily accessible.
Over the next eight (8) weeks we will consider a series of short videos (20 - 30 minutes each) created by Andy, a Westerner who traveled to the East and became a Buddhist monk. Each video provides instruction on a particular meditation topic or technique, and then guides us through a meditation. When we complete the video, we will break down into small groups and discuss the experiences we had during the meditation as well as how we might integrate the technique into our personal meditation routine.
April 11: How to get started - What is meditation? Begin your journey toward a calmer, clearer mind by learning the basics and try a guided meditation that focuses on the breath.
April 18: How to Let Go - Drop that baggage - and let go of anger, frustration, and longing. This effortless guided meditation takes an easygoing approach to visualization.
April 25: How to Fall in Love with Life - Pause for a moment of gratitude and learn to listen to the mind. Andy explores ways to fall in love with life and introduces a reflection meditation.
May 2: How to Deal with Stress - Overwhelmed? It often begins within. Change this relationship to anxiety and cope with stress using a simple, powerful meditation technique: nothing.
May 9: How to be Kind - Release resentment toward others - and oneself - and learn to live with greater compassion. Andy guides a loving kindness meditation.
May 16: How to Deal with Pain - How do we experience pain? Be present without the suffering that feels unbearable and bring the body and mind together with body scan meditation.
May 23: How to Deal with Anger - Transform your anger into something positive. Andy discusses how a shift in perspective can be a life-changing tool when relating to others.
May 30: How to Achieve Your Limitless Potential - Open your mind. Andy explores why the possibilities are limitless with a consistent mindfulness practice and leads a resting awareness meditation.
