Meditation Instruction

Research shows that a regular meditation practice can restore emotional balance, reduce stress, improve health and actually change the brain’s gray matter.  Practitioners report a greater sense of well-being, contentment, and feeling of connection to others.  Mindful meditation helps one awaken to the richness of each moment in life.  With practice, one can become aware of habitual reactions to stressors and discover new ways of responding to life’s challenges.

Course description

We can experience aging as a curse or a blessing depending on our attitude.   During these 8- weeks, through mindfulness practice, dialogue and reflection, we will open a conversation about living with more aliveness, gratitude and love as we move forward. Please join us as we …

  • Explore and challenge the age related stereotypes prevalent in our youth oriented culture
  • Open up to new ways of living with intention, meaning and purpose, beyond familiar roles
  • Recognize our role as elders in the community and the responsibility of handing down wisdom gained through life experience
  • Cultivate self-compassion for the body, mind and emotions as we journey though the final third of life finding peace in the face of uncertainty
  • Let our awareness of death be our guide to living more fully, authentically, and open-heartedly
  • Learn practices that will support us during this phase of life

This is a rare opportunity to move gently towards our anxieties about aging in an intimate and supportive setting.
