About this Event

This class meets for 5 weeks, via Zoom. A link will be shared via email before the first class.

If you are new to meditation or to the Insight community, or want to renew your practice by coming back to the basics, this course is for you. We will explore traditional dharma practices that calm and steady the mind, enable us to be more mindful, and open our hearts to friendliness and compassion. We will also learn how meditation can lead us to liberation through awakening our minds and hearts to things as they really are.
