Cultivating a Meditation Practice, taught by Jim Hare
March 30, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A 5-week class, meeting every Wednesday, March 9 – April 6
The Sanskrit/Pali word Bhavana means cultivation, literally ‘bringing into being’, so this class is for those who would like to initiate or mature a meditation practice. We will explore the field of Buddhist meditation, especially the practices of samatha (calming and concentrating), vipassana (insight), and shikantaza (just sitting). The teacher will combine instruction/lecture with experiential learning. The class is meant for everyone who wishes to explore the liberating path of sitting meditation. Instructor, Jim Hare, will draw on his own experience, and on sources such as Suzuki Roshi’s Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind and John Daido Loori’s The Art of Just Sitting.
Registration through SBMG, including teacher donation, is $40 – $100 until Feb 23rd, then $50-100. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
