Friday mornings, Sept. 1st through Dec 1st, 9:00 to 11:30 am
Offered through the Renaissance Society on campus of California State University, Sacramento.
In the earliest records of what the Buddha actually said about meditation, we find an elegant, nuanced, and amazingly effective practice. It is a cousin to the Insight Meditation often taught in this country. And, it has differences. It rejects one-pointed concentration and emphasizes relaxation, ease, and sense of humor. It blends the cultivation of ease with cultivation of insight. As your practice deepens, the instructions shift to take advantage of the experience you have gained.
This twelve-week class introduces this meditation style. My book, Buddha’s Map , will be used as a text.
Meditation can only be learned through regular practice. You’ll be asked to meditate daily for a least a half hour or longer if possible. If you already have a meditation practice, please be ready to set it aside for the duration of the class so you can give this style a try.
Classes will include periods of meditation, talks about the practice, personalized instruction, and time for questions and discussion. Beginning as well as experienced meditators are welcome.
Offered freely through the Renaissance Society to dues-paying members.
