Meditation Workshop this Weekend

I'm leading a workshop this weekend in "how to meditate." I don't think I've told many people about it so I have a feeling it will be an intimate gathering. It's at Rama Lotus on Sunday from 11 - 1 and it's $25, which includes a booklet with some of what we're going to do in the class.

Meditating is really easy and really hard at the same time. It's kind of like a lot of things that way. Meditation can be a place to see yourself so quickly because how you are when you meditate is how you are in other areas of your life. And sometimes that isn't a great thing to find out and when you're up for it, it is!

Like sometimes it's not nice to see how we don't want to sit still or we don't want to finish the task of just staying with the breath for 7 whole minutes. And that might remind us of how we don't want to complete any number of projects we're dealing with, including finishing cleaning up the office, for instance. And when we're finding ourselves calm and wonderful, that might remind us that we're calm and wonderful in many other areas including taking walks or folding laundry.

Learning to meditate is a wonderful thing to do, though. Sitting with ourselves for even a few minutes a day or a few minutes a week can help us refresh and renew, connecting with our source. It's a great tool to have in the kit.

Anyways, it's this Sunday. Please come and if you're not coming perhaps you could tell someone else about it who might like to come.
