How Should One Approach Daily Meditation Practice?

The Vimalakirti Sutra is the one of the most profound and insightful sutras
that expounds how lay practitioners can cultivate the Bodhisattva Path. In
this lecture, Guo Gu will talk about the core teaching and its application in
our daily life.


Guest speaker: Guo Gu (Dr. Jimmy Yu)
Founder of Tallahassee Chan Center
Associate Professor at Florida State University
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. Explanations about various experiences and obstacles in meditation will also be given.

The format of the class allows you to immerse yourself in the training, over two nights and two days. Your grasp of the methods will improve with each sitting, reinforced by group practice with like-minded students. You will return home motivated and equipped to cultivate your personal daily practice.
