Meditation is training in awareness and mindfulness. We work with facilitators trained in Tibetan and Zen Buddhist traditions. The practice of being still in the midst of mental activity allows us to study ourselves and gain insight into the depths of who we truly are. The goal is not to turn off the mind, thoughts or feelings, but to observe them without judgment. Meditation encourages us to study ourselves intensively, so that we may know our minds, what our patterns are, where they come from, and how we can rewire to create new, positive, healthy patterns. Meditation teaches us to be present, rest in what is, fully engaged in the here and now. This practice gives us the learning tools to transform our minds from negative to positive, chaotic to peaceful, unhappy to happy.
