Although the methods of meditation are simple and straightforward, it is best to practice them under the guidance of a teacher. Without a teacher, a meditator will not be able to correct beginner’s mistakes, which if uncorrected, could lead to problems or lack of useful results.

In our weekend meditation class, you will learn the fundamentals of sitting meditation, including proper bodily posture (sitting on a cushion or a chair), relaxation, and basic methods of concentration. In addition, you’ll learn about the proper environment, equipment, and timing, as well as self-massage and important concepts related to the process of meditation.
Date: 2019/9/21 Saturday 10:00AM - 4:00PM
Led by Dr. Rikki Asher

Meditation is a common approach to Dharma, and each method has to return to a conscious view of self. However, all the high rises start from the ground, the basic solid method would save lots of exploration on the way. Hope everyone will take the time to participate the basic.
