An Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Berkley Public Library
Meeting Room
Most people tend to live their lives with a wandering mind, worried or consumed by past or future events. This introduction to meditation tries to open up a world of the present moment, the most important time of our lives. 

Sitting meditation can provide you with an anchor to your present moment. The objection, “I can’t meditate. My mind races too much.” is the perfect scenario for this introduction to the moment. 

We will start with a short introduction followed by a 30 minute guided, sitting meditation, then close the session with questions, answers and interesting experiences. Session led by Greg Sherburn.
