The practice of meditation is the oldest stress management technique known to humankind.

This meditation workshop will ​be a rich​ introduction to mindfulness practice for newcomers. For those who already practice mindfulness (insight) meditation, it will be a more ​in depth look at what we focus on.

​The workshop will begin with a talk on the “Four Foundations of Mindfulness.”

​We will then have Instructions ​and Practice in Sitting, Standing and Walking Meditation​ throughout the day. It will be a total immersion into these practices.

​Attendees will be able to use the techniques to incorporate insight meditation practices into their daily lives.

John will also be giving a talk Friday night at Unity North and a day-long retreat at Heron House on Sunday.

Registration is now closed.
