Introduction to Meditation

Beginning Meditation Class

If you’ve wanted to learn how to meditate but don’t know where to start, or if you’ve meditated on your own before but would like to receive some instruction and also experience the benefits of sitting with a group, please join us for this introductory class on meditation.

There are many reasons why developing a regular meditation practice benefits our mental and physical health. Some of the scientifically established benefits of meditation are a reduction in anxiety and depression and an improvement in cognitive abilities. Meditation helps us develop our capacity for happiness and balance in everyday life.

Course Leaders: Barbara Roberts and Colleen Vaughn

Barbara Roberts is a long-time meditator who has studied with teachers in several Buddhist traditions. She has attended many silent meditation retreats over the past 25 years.

Colleen Vaughn has studied and practiced meditation intensively since retiring from veterinary medicine.
