Course Description

Meditation is a practice by which a person achieves a greater sense of awareness, wisdom, introspection, and a deeper sense of relaxation.  Practiced for millennia, it is the discipline of concentrating on a single object, thought, sound, movement, or on attention itself.  Many people meditate to achieve a greater sense of spiritual awareness and understanding of their professed religion, but it can be practiced by anyone regardless of their religious beliefs and background. 

In this course, we will explore the various techniques of meditation, such as sitting, standing, and yoga.  Becoming aware of your thoughts, surroundings, sounds, smells, bodily movements, and especially your breath are fundamental techniques of meditation.  The basic objective is to be present – here and now.  It is the act of being precisely in the moment, neither controlling your mind rigidly nor letting it go completely, but being aware of who you are and where you are.

Meditation is about being comfortable and at peace.  As we explore the several techniques of practicing meditation, you can pick and choose those practices that make you most comfortable.  It is important to leave your preconceived notions of meditation behind you, keep an open mind, and be willing to learn the art of meditation.
