7:00-8:00pm, third Fridays
Our next meditation event is on November 21st, 2014.
Drop-in fee is $13 (or use your membership card).
Leave the week behind and enter your weekend in peace. Join us for this month’s class, where the focus will be shamatha (calm abiding) and metta (loving-kindness) meditation. Deepen your ability to be present, compassionate and loving towards yourself and with others. Our time together includes instruction, inspiration and practice. Developing mindful awareness through meditation allows us to “bloom like the lotus, at home in the muddy water.”
Join us every third Friday for an hour-long guided meditation led by teacher and author Sharon Rosen. No experience necessary. All levels welcome.
According to Sharon, “Meditation helps us to become more present to life. Through the practices, we develop feelings of unconditional friendliness towards ourselves and others. Each month we will explore different aspects of meditation, including mindfulness, lovingkindness, walking meditation and guided body scans. You will leave these sessions inspired, refreshed and with solid tools that you can weave into your everyday life. Please join us and begin or deepen your own meditation journey.”
Preregistration is NOT necessary, but feel free to reserve your spot.

Life is filled with bright, shiny objects that distract us, knock us off track, and keep us from knowing our truest needs. They pull us away from our core values and innate wisdom.
How do we figure out what really works for us?
I believe that we all have the ability to find those answers, even if we can’t always access that wisdom or follow through on it. It has to do with slowing down and listening deeply, two things that are not given much respect in this world of information overload. High speed, next generation wireless networks keep us always plugged in out there but not in here where it helps the most.
The essence of what I teach and embody in my work comes from learning to listen deeply to myself. It’s about paying mindful attention to my body and soul to figure out what works for me. I’ve learned how to give myself what I need to truly flourish and feel strong and vibrant. I feel so grateful to be able to share this learning with you.
