What we're about
Let's learn how to meditate even if we have busy minds while learning how to get the physical and mental benefits of meditation into our lives.
If the feeling that you have to quiet your mind or get a new religion before you learn to meditate has put you off, this class is for you. You won't have to empty your mind, sit on the floor, or have a new belief system to learn how to bring the many benefits of meditation into your life.
Classes will be offered again in fall of 2018 for a block of weeks TBA at the Lincoln Street Church, open attendance, 6:45 to 7:45pm. Group classes are $12 per class or if you like, you can buy the whole block for a discount TBA. Thank you to all those who have attended so far!
I'm a daily meditator who has had very good teachers and now I'm trained in teaching, too. I have a very keen interest in lessening the suffering in this world by teaching meditation and making it a simple, easy, and accessible for everyone. I also teach people who don't have much access to meditation classes through several Portland non-profit groups: Human Solutions, Wallace Medical Concern and Home Forward.
Sunday mornings have now switched to private clients so if you'd like to learn how to meditate with a private teacher in a cozy artist's loft, contact me. I teach in peoples homes and will also have a private space available soon at an artist's loft in SE Portland.
The meetup classes will be drop- in, you don't have to sign up for a series. Classes are for beginners, suitable for adults or older, mature teens.
I can make one guarantee: you will never regret learning how to meditate.
Please note: *This is not a silent meditation class, an 8 week mindfulness course, a Buddhist Sangha, or a free class. It is not for advanced meditators but those looking to bring meditation into their lives simply and easily.
Please be able to sit quietly and calmly through a one hour class. Class is not suitable for small children. It's okay, some people are just not ready to sit quietly for an hour. It's helpful to know whether it's right for you at this time.
Classes will include body relaxation, focus on the breath, silent mantra, heart centered meditations, finding peace in the moment, contemplative meditations and instructions on how to bring the physical and mental benefits of meditation into your everyday life in multiple and simple ways with enjoyable tools. Hope to see you in class!
