Introduction to Meditation Workshop - Learn How to Meditate, Saturday, April 1, 2017, 10:00am - 11:30am, Charles Fillmore Chapel. With the hectic pace and demands of modern life, many people feel stressed and over-worked. It often feels like there is just not enough time in the day to get everything done. Our stress and tiredness make us unhappy, impatient and frustrated. It can even affect our health. We stay so busy we feel there is no time to slow down. But meditation actually gives you more time by making your mind calmer and more focused. A simple ten or fifteen minute breathing meditation can help you to overcome your stress and find some  peace and balance.

Meditation can also help us to understand our awakened mind. We can learn how to transform our mind from negative to positive, from disturbed to peaceful, from unhappy to happy. Overcoming negative minds and cultivating constructive thoughts is the product of a meditation practice. This is a profound practice you can enjoy throughout the day, not just while seated on a cushion.

In this introductory workshop you can learn the basics of meditation with Rev. Ronn McLane. Although this workshop is being offered as part of Unity Temple and Temple Buddhist Center it is important to understand this is not a workshop of religious nature and can be adapted to a secular or spiritual practice of your choice.

Pre-registration is recommended as space may fill quickly.
