Oakland - Meditation Training: Establishing a Meditation Practice in 4 Short Weeks


With Rev. Keiryu Liên Shutt
in Oakland at East Bay Meditation Center

285 17th Street

Four Wednesdays, 7 – 8:30 pm

Want to learn how to meditate? Or have you tried at different times but just can’t quite figure out how to make it work for you?

This four-class series is geared just for you. Specific, time-honored and easy-to-follow instructions will be given in three areas: body, heart/emotions and mind/mental states. Each week, specific meditation instructions will be given, with an opportunity to put them into practice and have your questions answered.

Handouts will be given at the end of each class, making it easier for you to practice that week’s focus in the time between classes. You will also have an opportunity for contact with the instructor, so that your own specific issues can be addressed. There will be opportunities to share with others in the group if you choose, fostering a cohort-like, shared experience to encourage and support your efforts to learn and practice meditation.

Think of this class as a four-week “training camp”—a container for you to not only establish a meditation practice of your own but to also have a “team” to practice with and to draw encouragement from. It is much easier to put into practice any new skill when we have buddies to do it with.

Come see how the two factors of practiced guidance and cohort support can help you to establish a sustainable practice.
