Because of a number of requests, I am beginning a new online (phone) program called the “Introduction to Meditation”. Make no mistake, while it is called an ‘Introduction’, this is not a simplistic course. My first sentence of the course will probably be one that you have never heard before, and may not fully understand for some time. I will define meditation and the basic principles behind meditation, and I will teach you how to use them in your active daily life. Additionally, I will use guided meditations to explore the wide range of meditations available to you and talk about how to apply them. We will use receptive, active, and moving meditations, as well as use various modalities as focal points for meditation.
There is a lot of confusion about what constitutes meditation, how to do it, how to know you are doing it “right”, and how to overcome the “hindrances” to meditation. While this is an introductory program, it will be extensive with 8 sessions of up to 1½ hours each. Every meditation will be quite distinct. The class will meet twice a week and last about a month. There will be no review sessions, though we will take questions in every class. The series will create a solid foundation for all future spiritual work.
This class can be taken as a ‘stand alone’ class or you can do it while participating in other programs. Commitment: I am asking you to commit to the entire 8 sessions as well as taking some time daily for practice. The first session will be on Sunday, August 2nd, at 10 AM ET, the second session that week will meet Wed evening, Aug 5 at 8PM ET. Cost for the 8 sessions: $300.00 (325.00 via PayPal). Recordings will be available after each session.
