Why practice?

Meditation is not just something we do for a certain period of time in a very specific place (i.e., the meditation cushion). It is a way of being – present, awake, receptive, non-reactive, compassionate, and taking appropriate action – with ourselves and all that is. It is a way of cultivating peace within ourselves, and by so doing, cultivating peace in the world.

 

                                                     

Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation

In this 6-week course, we will explore how to increase happiness and transform suffering through mindfulness practice. We will start out with fully guided meditations to help you enter deep relaxation, explore postures that help support your practice, and engage in discussion and ‘homework’ to help you deepen and benefit from your practice. This class is appropriate for those new to meditation as well as those who are open to practicing with a beginner’s mind.

About the Instructor

Prajna Choudhury

On a spiritual path from childhood, Prajna found her home as a mindfulness meditation practitioner in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh in the early 2000’s. She has facilitated meditation groups for many years and in 2013 was ordained by Thich Nhat Hanh as a lay practitioner (Buddhist chaplain) in his Order of Interbeing. She has first-hand experience with the deep healing and inner resources that mindfulness practice offers, and loves sharing the benefits of practice with others through her class and ongoing practice group. Knowing that mindfulness practice requires safety, Prajna offers special classes for POC and LGBTQ affinity groups.
