In this weekend meditation workshop we will learn how cultivating awareness can help create a peaceful mind and joyful heart. The practice of meditation enables us to transform all experiences, even difficult emotions and painful thoughts, into sources of joy. Over the course of this weekend, we will explore the landscape of our experience with mindful awareness, learning how to use thoughts, emotions, our senses, and even awareness itself as support for meditation.

This weekend offers an excellent introduction for new students and a time to deepen practice for experienced practitioners. It is suitable for people of all faiths.
