In this 2nd part of a 3 part program, about calmness meditation and finding a base of stillness in the center of all experience, you will learn about world construction that happens in every moment of experience. Using the calm state of shamatha as a foundation, you will examine how experience is preconfigured through the process of recognition, cutting us off from our innate freedom. These half-hour classes require no previous knowledge or experience of meditation and only entail a commitment of one or two short meditation sessions per day.
For anyone who wishes to begin meditation or deepen their meditation practice, this focused course develops a series of simple 3-minute meditations to create a foundation of calm awareness. Short focused sessions are extremely effective in developing a base for self-awareness and the promotion of inner resilience.
Classes meet online for seven weeks, for one half-hour with an additional optional half-hour of questions with the Instructor. Classes are recorded and you will have access to the recordings for your personal use only. Each week, there will be a short lecture followed by experiential practices and discussion. Weekly handouts will provide inspirational readings and the instructions you need to continue your experiential learning at home. An online chat room gives you the optional ability to meet and dialog with your fellow students.
