Guided Meditation for Beginners
What does mindfulness mean, and how do you practice it? Join us for Guided Mindfulness Meditation for Beginners led by an authentic master and well-known meditator Venerable Prof. Geshe Phelgye. Enjoy a peaceful mind amongst the chaos and become a happier person as a result. Come sit with us in person (limited capacity) or join live via Zoom for mindfulness classes held each Sunday in August 2021 from 1-2 PM (Pacific Time). The course begins on August 1, for a total of five classes.
The benefits of incorporating mindfulness into your daily life can be far-reaching. Whether it’s your communication, your relationships, eating patterns, or observing your reactions and behaviors. Learn how to infuse your life with more awareness and intent. Mindfulness meditation has been proven effective in decreasing anxiety and depression, as shown in several recent studies, such as this one published in Oxford’s Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience journal. With Geshe-la as your mindfulness coach, you will learn how to train your mind to become more aware of your thoughts, feelings, and body sensations instead of being overwhelmed by them.
Mindfulness exercises aren’t just for adults. Children and teens benefit greatly, too, for instance.
