This course includes:

• meditation instruction, sitting and walking meditations.

• how to develop and maintain a home meditation practice

• dharma teachings and how to integrate them into your daily life

• learning how obstacles are the path to awakening and support with them


This class is limited to 8 students. No previous experience required. All levels. This course meets pre-requisites for the 100hr mindfulness meditation teacher training.
