The Westchester Mediation Center hosts a 4-Week course to strengthen your daily meditation practice
September 13, 20, 27, and October 4th
Challenge and change happen to all of us during our lives. While life brings us joy and community, it can also bring us difficulty and struggle. Meditation doesn’t promise to be the answer to all of our problems. But it can help us greet life’s obstacles with a sense of stability and confidence.
Meditation shows us how to work with our minds when we can’t control what’s going on around us. And it connects us with others who experience the same feelings and difficulties we have faced ourselves. Through meditation we develop friendliness and humor toward ourselves, our lives, and to the world around us.
In this course we will discuss meditation technique, individual home practice, learn what is meant by mindfulness and awareness, and how to grow into and celebrate a lifelong practice of meditation.
“Our life is an endless journey: the practice of meditation allows us to experience all the textures of the roadway, which is what the journey is all about.” — Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche
“When something is bothering us—someone is bugging us, a situation is irritating you, or physical pain is troubling you—you must work with your mind, and that is done through meditation. Working with our mind is the only means through which we’ll actually begin to feel happy and contented with the world we live in.” — Pema Chodron.
