Further free classes for those who attend and value what's being offered here. We start at 5:30pm sharp. Please be on time. Geared toward college students and young professionals. Beginners and experienced meditation practitioners welcome. Religious and non-religious. People of all walks of life welcome. WHAT TO EXPECT We begin with a short meditation. Then a short talk about the Dharma (tr. "The Path" / "The Way"), followed by a slightly longer meditation. You may ask questions after class if you like. In 3 classes, I give you all you need to setup a consistent and bright home meditation practice for yourself (including a free gift on each of your first 3 classes). This class is for you if: • You want to be successful in your career, studies and/or athletics • You need a way out of career burn-out • You simply want more balance in your daily life and relationships • You want to feel happy a lot more often! • You want to relish in life in all of its FULLNESS, unobscured by heavy thinking mind • You truly want to give to others... Being bright and balanced, especially in the most difficult situations, puts you in a unique position to be of service to others. ABOUT THE TEACHER Born in California, Chitananda has been on the path for 16 years under the guidance of extraordinarily bright, heart-centered teachers in a rich school of Buddhism. He attributes his success in academics, athletics and career to his daily home meditation practice. In fact, meditation is his favorite thing, because it's the one thing that gives to all the other things he loves (career success, SCUBA, Martial Arts, etc.). And he loves sharing it with all sincere students. Chitananda has applied the teachings in everyday modern life, right here in the Bay Area for years, in several arenas, as a... - Software Engineer at a major company in S.F. (current) - Businessman (prior career) - Martial Artist in a few styles (hard and soft) - SCUBA diver - Student @ Cal (gr. 2006) Buddhism, as Chitananda practices it, is more of a psychology than a religion, informing the mindset we bring to every situation in daily life, and the meditation that empowers our days. People of every walk of life have naturally returned to this class week after week. WHY IS THIS CLASS FREE? From Chitananda: 'Eternity "pays" me well to teach. I feel deep in my heart that I'm receiving something far greater than money when I share the teachings with others. Come, try, meditate and laugh with me.'
