Essential Meditation

Monday nights online, 6:30-8:00 PM Eastern Time
Taught by Mitch Owen, Nalandabodhi New York

Nalandabodhi New York (NBNY) is offering “Essential Meditation” a 9-week series on Mondays, from 6:30 – 8:00 PM beginning on May 18.  Essential Meditation introduces and explores techniques of calm-abiding (shamatha) meditation. Through this type of meditation practice, we develop a fundamental sense of getting to know our minds which over time leads to qualities of peace, joy, and the ability to be at ease in any situation.

This class is meant for those who are new to meditation as well as those who would like to reconnect with or reinforce their personal meditation practice. Class meetings will run for 9 weeks and will alternate between presentations (philosophy and technique, with discussion) and practice (meditation sessions with time for questions).

No experience required and all traditions are welcome.

As times and incomes are uncertain at the moment, this course is being offered by donation, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Registration will be required for this offering in order to receive the Zoom link. To register or for more information, please contact Mitch Owen.
