Basics of Meditation

Basics of Meditation

Four Saturdays: April 6, 13, 20 and 27
10 - 11:30am

Led by Laura Liss

This series of classes is offered to help meditation practice become more accessible - welcoming beginners, those wanting to get back to meditating, and anyone who wants to refresh their practice. 

The basics will include grounding posture, lightly guided practice and gentle inquiry. As we cultivate our natural capacity to observe direct experience through the Four Foundations of Mindfulness (the body, feelings, mind and phenomena), we'll also explore the motivation and dedication of practice which is to benefit all beings, loving kindness meditation, and the significance of the three jewels - Buddha, dharma and sangha.

All interested practitioners are welcome!

There is no fee for this class and dana will be accepted.

Registration is required and space is limited. This class will be held in person. 

Along with experience as a psychotherapist, social worker, partner, and mother of three adults, Laura is a Certified MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) Instructor and Yoga teacher. She has enjoyed teaching MBSR since 2016, as well as various forms of Yoga since 2005 and is devoted to helping people wake up to the moments of life with kindness, curiosity and compassion. 

In 2017, Laura began attending retreats and studying Buddhism, and in 2022 she completed the White Heron Sangha Leadership Development Program led by Rosemary Donnell, James Coleman and Mick Malotte.
