Orleans – Weekly classes on Wednesdays, until June 26


Weekly Meditation classes in Orleans:

Wednesday nights, 7pm-8:30pm
Orleans Public Library, 1705 Orleans Boulevard

These evening classes will introduce you to guided meditations and practical advice which will help you to deal with life’s problems, and to become the positive and happy person you’d like to be. Through training in meditation and special ways of thinking, you’ll discover within yourself the potential we all share to experience real and lasting happiness from within.

Each month, we’ll focus on a different topic in our weekly classes; for the month of February the topic will be:

The Joy of Meditation

Meditation is an ancient technique that Buddha taught for all levels of interest and capacity. It greatly helps to reduce stress and anxiety, and makes us feel stable and content.

When we meditate, we are working with our mind; we’re training it to go in the direction we want it to go in. We want a mind that stays calm when life brings sudden change, disappointment, and aggravation. With the right intention and with effort, we can start a daily meditation practice that we’ll soon grow to love and value. Meditation also helps us develop our good heart, which is something our friends and family can enjoy and appreciate.

Each class will include practical advice, guided meditations, and time to discuss.
