Meditation Class

This is an open meditation class based on the sutra, The Four Foundations of Mindfulness, offered by Brother Phap Ho. In this class, we will learn how to practice the exercises in the sutra in our sitting and walking meditation practice, as well as in daily life. In each class, instruction will be offered, we will practice together, and there will be time to ask questions. There will be two sessions focusing on each of the first Three Foundations respectively (body, feelings, and mental formations). Each class will have different content; you are welcome to attend one, several, or all classes. This class can be beneficial if you already have a daily meditation practice and want to go deeper, as well as if you are new to the practice of mindfulness and meditation.
