The Elements of Meditation

This short fun workshop will distills the elements of meditation, or at least my understanding of them, inspired by my new book with Dan Harris, Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics. Suitable for total beginners to more experienced explorers. The idea is to kick-start – or refresh – peoples’ meditation practice, by giving them both a clear understanding of four core meditation styles – concentration (leads to peace), mindfulness (leads to perspective), loving-kindness (leads to connection), and “just being” (leads to acceptance) – and how they can all be mixed, matched, and integrated into a single practice routine. Workshop is 2.5 hours long, a mix of teaching, discussion and guided practice. Cost is $25. Only room for 25 people, so it’s first come, first serve. Sign up here.

Important caveat: we’ll be filming the whole thing, and using the audio and video as the basis of an online course. That means you have to be Ok with having cameras around. And, if you ask a good question, we’d like to be able to include your voice and possibly your live image if you’re cool with it. A huge amount of learning happens from listening to other people’s questions and experiences. For folks who want to take a workshop with me, but don’t feel comfortable around cameras, there will be other opportunities later in the year.
