Meditation

The type of meditation we practice involves simple — but not always easy! — breath and awareness exercises that bring our attention to the present moment. Through these exercises, we relax and rejuvenate our bodies, see the world around us more clearly, and act with more compassion towards ourselves and others.

Our meditation practice is enriched with teachings from a variety of spiritual traditions as well as lessons from our own personal lives. Sessions consist of a  20-30 minute meditation, with guidance as needed,  a 15 minute discussion or exercise and a short closing meditation. There is nothing quite like meditating with a community.
