About The Event
This course takes place over two evenings: March 27 and April 3 from 3:30 to 6:30 PM. Attending both days is strongly recommended.
This course will begin at the very beginning: WHY meditate? We'll talk about physical and psychological advantages of meditation. We'll then sample several kinds of meditation. Sitting on a cushion is not for everyone, and there are other kinds of meditation that may fit better. After each short practice, we'll discuss the experience, looking at why meditation is difficult for almost everyone. We'll also address how to make meditation a little easier. Over the course of two sessions you'll experience eight kinds of meditation. Near the end of the second session we'll look into the effect of meditation on community, and on community engagement.

Gift economics is a different way of interacting with money and understanding what something is “worth.” In a Gift model, goods and services are not sold as they are in a market model of economics. Rather, they are given freely with no requirement of an exchange. We believe that the lessons and teachings we give and receive in our workshops are priceless.
At the same time, we do have needs as an organization operating within the current economic and social structures. Therefore, all participants in our community workshops are offered an opportunity to support our work. No one is required to give, and no amount is considered too small or too large.
