Connecting to Inner Peace and Joy

Many ancient traditions teach that you have an inner source of uncaused peace and joy. The easiest way to connect to this source is through meditation and its sister practice, mindfulness. Over 40 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 about how and why they work on both your inner and outer world. Each session will include a period of meditation (sitting comfortably in chairs) to allow participants the opportunity to experience the benefits for themselves.
The objective of this program is not understanding or belief, but rather direct experience. The experience will be a familiar one – rediscovering what you did not know you had lost.
All are welcome. Drop Ins are welcome.
