Meditation for Beginners SEP.jpg

Meditation for Beginners

Saturday, September 8   •   11am – 1pm
Free for members   •   $25 for non-members
Teacher:  Sumit Som

You can read about meditation. You can listen to a podcast about meditation. But nothing beats learning to meditate among fellow beginners directly from a skilled practitioner. This two-hour workshop includes guided meditations and practical, simple methods for bringing a little more peace into your life. You'll learn – and better yet, discuss: 

• The benefits of meditation
• Why meditation actually works
• How long to meditate, what to focus on – and why!
• How to overcome distractions
• How to stick to a regular meditation schedule


Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary.

(The next "Meditation for Beginners" workshop will be offered on Saturday, October 13.)
