Mid-Winter Moments of Peace

Beginning February 1st, come to the library any Sunday in February at 1:30 and learn a unique mindfulness technique to promote inner peace. Or come for all four sessions! Each class begins with a guided meditation experience focusing on a special theme. This experience will be followed by a brief discussion about mindfulness meditation from the Eastern and Western perspectives. The first class will explore patience; subsequent classes will focus on compassion, generosity, and authenticity. After each one-hour class, interested participants may choose to remain for an optional 30-minute discussion and Q&A on mindfulness and the historical role of Buddhism in this practice.
