'Mindfulness Meditation' class

Come join us for our weekly Mindfulness Meditation class! Based on traditional forms of Buddhist Vipassana/Insight meditation practice, this class is designed to relax, center and balance the body and mind, by bringing direct awareness and deep insight into the fundamental truths of change and impermanence that characterizes all of reality at every level.

Learn to focus your attention on the breath, and experience the subtle sensations in and on the body. Master the observation of the endless stream of thoughts and emotions from a more dis-engaged perspective, and find deep inner peace and stillness, by letting go of the mind's continuous chatter.

Many of us often go on unintentional 'roller-coaster-rides' of cravings, desires, and clinging on the one hand, and aversions, hatred, and resistance on the other; a never-ending cycle of grasping for experiences we 'like' and want, and rejecting those we 'dislike' and don't want. In this Mindfulness meditation class we learn how to experience reality more directly, without the need to always react emotionally to positive or negative experiences, without the endless swing between happiness and unhappiness, that can be so exhausting and a huge a drain on our energy. Instead we balance our awareness and our mind, which allows us to rest in a peaceful calmness deep within ourselves.

So come sit with us and get a new perspective on life!

Beginner's to meditation are welcome! All meditation classes are guided, so no previous experience is required.

All classes take place in South Anchorage at 13910 Venus Way. (Directions: Take the New Seward Hwy. South, Exit DeArmoun Road, make a right on DeArmoun, make a left on Old Seward, make an immediate right on Venus Way)

Please, do NOT wear any strongly scented lotions or perfumes/aftershave, if at all possible, since this can be very distracting for fellow meditators.

Since there is a limited number of spots per class, a pre-payment is required to register for all classes. Please note: If you cancel your registration more than 48 hours before the class, you will receive a full refund. Any cancellations within less than 48 hours of class are non-refundable!

If you RSVP 'yes' for any given event and you can't make it, please change your RSVP online to 'no', so that we have an accurate headcount and to make space available in case a class is full!

For any other questions, please email or call Stefan [masked])

PS: A cat lives in this house and often hangs out in the room where we're meditating and/or do mindfulness yoga, so if you have allergies, be forewarned:)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
