Online: Insight 101 – Six Week Beginner’s Course
with Lani Miller
Wednesdays, June 23rd – July 28th, 2021 | 10:00am – 12:00pm ET

There are many types of meditation and many reasons why one might be drawn to it. Meditation can be a powerful way to reduce stress. It can also help us to understand and relate to challenging feelings in healthier ways.

Along with these possible benefits, and perhaps most importantly, meditation offers us the opportunity to learn to be fully present and open to whatever is happening in our own experience, just as it is. Through this kind attention, happiness and peace grow in our lives; we learn to be kinder and more accepting of ourselves and bring this awareness into our relationships and the world we share.

If you’ve been wanting to learn how to meditate or refresh and renew the meditation practice you already have, we invite you to join this six-week meditation course to explore the practice of Insight (Vipassana) meditation in a warm, supportive environment.

We will emphasize experiential practice, including instructions for sitting and walking meditation, and explore how we can bring this practice of presence into our everyday lives.

Classes will include time for practice, talks, guidance from the teacher, and plenty of time for sharing and Q&A.
