New Community Workshops

Three new community workshops begin in November, one each month. They are each two hours long, free, and don’t require any Buddhist background or interest. A mix of explanation, meditation, experiential exercises, and facilitated discussion will be used to ensure that the workshop is practical and translates to your life.

The focus will be on internal mindfulness practices that we can make use of in any situation. As proficiency grows, many find increased happiness, adaptability and confidence.
