Details

Over 5 classes, you will be invited to learn about the 5 Love Languages, and practice applying them in your many relationships at home and at work. Based on Gary Chapman's book and New York Times Best Seller 25 years ago and just as popular today, we will begin by taking the Love Quiz to find out how we wish to be shown love. Then class to class we will look for opportunities to show love to the people around us in each of the 5 ways. After attending these classes, you are sure to find your relationships more loving and fulfilling. Not just for people in romantic relationships, but applicable to all people wanting to feel love deeper and share it with other more effectively.

As always, these meditation classes include basic mindfulness techniques including noticing thoughts, feeling, and perception, but are "beyond mindfulness" in that they include challenges to some of the limiting observations. They are great for persons who have tried a bit of mindfulness meditation but would like a bit deeper dive now. Each class includes a 30 minute silent meditation practice time. Suitable for beginners to advanced, ages 12+. Attendance at single sessions is permitted, but you'll get the most out of it by attending the whole series (Jan. 17, Jan. 31, Feb. 7, Feb. 21, Mar. 7) . Classes are offered on the basis of Dana, which is also "pay what you choose", which allows you to pay what you value.

Linda Hochstetler will be teaching these classes. She has been studying and practicing a variety of meditation practices (mindfulness, Zen, and Vajrayana Buddhism) for more than 30 years. She is a meditation teacher who has studied with Senseis Doug Duncan and Catherine Pawasarat, meditation teachers and authors of 2 books - Wasteland to Pureland, and Dharma If You Dare.
