We live in a world that encourages multi-tasking and distraction. But concentration is central to the Eightfold Path. This class focuses on gaining more concentration in meditation and ultimately your life. We talk about what the Buddha said about concentration and its benefits, what gets in our way from being concentrated, and a variety of techniques for gaining more concentration in meditation and beyond.
This class meets on 6 Tuesdays from Sept 3 – Oct 8.
This class is a Dana based class. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Dana means giving. The suggested donation for this class series, which includes 6 classes, is $180 dollars.

Please give generously. Your act of generosity is significant. The Buddha taught that all of the beautiful qualities of heart and mind begin with generosity: Generosity dissolves the separation of self and other… Giver receiver and gift intertwined. Everyone has a role to play in supporting the whole community practicing to their fullest potential.
