“Developing a consistent meditation practice” 6-week workshop series

  • Sep 16, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • Kerry's house

Having trouble getting your tush on the cush? You are not alone!  Let's get together and talk about ways to develop a more consistent meditation practice.  Whether you are just starting out or have years of meditation experience, come learn and share about what makes consistent practice possible.  Each week we'll explore another challenge and/or strategy in order to develop some new tools and collectively support each other's practice. Topics will include: setting the habit, overcoming distractions/excuses, recognizing benefits, cultivating self compassion, developing a meditator identity, and relying on sangha.  Dharma talks, short articles and homework will help us explore each topic. Teachings used will be Buddhist or Buddhist inspired, though not solely affiliated with a particular lineage or teacher. The workshop is donation-based, and any donations will be used to create a new sangha space at Kerry's for ongoing group sits and retreats.

Week 2:  Overcoming distractions/excuses 

·      Recognizing what keeps you from getting to/staying on the cushion at your chosen time

·      Accepting and moving beyond distractions/excuses

·      Creating sacred space

    I have been attending meditation classes and workshops in Lewiston for three years. I moved to Westbrook last March. It would be great to develop a consistent mediation practice, but it is so easy to make excuses and procrastinate. I would like to learn strategies for developing a consistent practice.
