Finding Peace and Joy Within

Many ancient traditions teach there is a source of peace and joy within, that is independent of circumstances e.g. stressful situations. The easiest way to connect to this inner source is through meditation and its sister practice, mindfulness. Over 50 years of scientific research have clearly demonstrated there are significant social and health benefits to these practices.
In this newest eight week session we will explore the ideas behind these ancient practices, and the modern understandings of how and why they work on both your inner and outer world. In addition, Barry will share some of what he learned from his latest four-week visit to India.
Each session will include periods of meditation (sitting comfortably in chairs) to allow participants the opportunity to experience the benefits for themselves, and the opportunity to share experiences and insights with others. About half of the session will be talk/discussion and about half will be meditation.
All are welcome. Drop Ins are welcome.
