With the hectic pace and demands of modern life, many people feel stressed and over-worked. It often feels like there is just not enough time in the day to get everything done. Our stress and tiredness make us unhappy, impatient and frustrated. It can even affect our health. We stay so busy we feel there is no time to slow down. But meditation actually gives you more time by making your mind calmer and more focused. A simple ten or fifteen minute breathing meditation can help you to overcome your stress and find some peace and balance.
Meditation can also help us to understand our awakened mind. We can learn how to transform our mind from negative to positive, from disturbed to peaceful, from unhappy to happy. Overcoming negative minds and cultivating constructive thoughts is the product of a meditation practice. This is a profound practice you can enjoy throughout the day, not just while seated on a cushion.
In this introductory workshop you can learn the basics of meditation with Rev. Ronn McLane. Although this workshop is being offered as part of Unity Temple and Temple Buddhist Center it is important to understand this is not a workshop of religious nature and can be adapted to a secular or spiritual practice of your choice.
Pre-registration is recommended as space may fill quickly.

This class is a precursor to participation in a sangha refuge ceremony planned for Sunday May, 7th 2017 at 10:30 am.
Taking refuge is a traditional and powerful practice that implies finding a reliable spiritual sanctuary, and utterly safe place to rest your heart and mind. We go for refuge from confusion, delusion and difficult emotions. Not as an escape but as a support in working with them.
This 4-week class will explore the ongoing ways we can take refuge in any and every moment by remembering refuge and all it symbolizes -- as well as reaffirming the wish for awakening in all we do.
