Buddhist-Informed Meditation – Exploring the Idea of Basic Goodness
July 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm$10 – $80
With Anna Crane
The ninth of our 10-part Wisdom Meditation series, intended for new and seasoned meditators alike. We will join together to meditate in a welcoming and uplifting group setting. Each event in the series features a different meditation technique. We have carefully selected the order of each technique in the series so you can progress in developing your skills in relaxation, breathing, focus, concentration, compassion and higher consciousness. We will discuss the science and benefits of meditation, why and when you may choose the specific meditation technique of the week, and real life examples of how meditation has been powerful and meaningful in the lives of our teachers and participants. There will also be some light physical movement and plenty of time for meditation and questions.
Anna, an experienced and inspiring trained Meditation Guide in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition , will introduce us to the concept of “basic goodness.” The view is that our human experience just as it is-is good. It doesn’t mean a situation is easy, but that there is a way to remain present for what is happening without increasing personal suffering. Part of the approach is to recognize the basic goodness in yourself and others. Anna will lead us into a meditative state to allow us to appreciate our own basic goodness.
