This class will introduce the basic principles of insight/mindfulness meditation, including mindfulness of breath, body, and mind. Through talks, silent and guided meditation, exercises, and discussion, the class will help participants learn to quiet the constant chatter of their minds, become less reactive toward difficult experiences, cultivate peaceful hearts, and touch the profound spiritual realm within us all. The class suits beginning meditators and those who wish to put new energy into their practice.
