The purpose of meditation is to spend time beneath the tirade of our everyday thoughts, concerns and preoccupations; to reach and sit in the place in our being where there are no concerns, where it is very calm and peaceful – our essential selves, the essence of our being. This series of classes introduces the student to meditation techniques from a variety of traditions, giving participants the opportunity to start the day with a clear mind, a fresh outlook, and the energy that comes from contact with one’s deep self.
