Program

Program description

Meditation is the core practice in Buddhism. Buddhism encompasses many subjects, but it is through meditation that we explore and apply those teachings. In Tibetan, the word for meditation is translated as “to become familiar with.” In meditation, you quiet your mind and open your heart to become familiar with yourselves and the world around you through the lens of Buddhist teachings.

This weekend program will concentrate on core Buddhist meditation practices with supporting related teachings. You will apply yourselves in stillness meditations to quiet an active mind; generative meditations to build positive emotions and thoughts; and analytic meditations to open your understanding. There will be a lot of time ‘on the mat’ in order to go deep in your practices.

You will leave with valuable skills that can change how you choose to relate to, react to and view the world around you, and the tools to establish or deepen your personal meditation practice.

Open to all

There are no prerequisites for this program; it is appropriate for meditators at all levels and those simply interested in exploring the teachings.
