The Power of Awareness, Part 1
10 Wednesdays / Beginning on September 17, 2014 (Last class on November 26) / 7 p.m.
Practicing mindfulness meditation reveals and develops the qualities of wisdom and compassion, the twin virtues of the discipline.
Everyone can benefit from this practice. It helps free us from illusion, so that we can look at ourselves with greater clarity and make appropriate changes in our lives. We become aware of the depth of selfishness and the real intent that can motivate actions that are thought to be altruistic.
Taught by Thich nu Tinh Quang, based on the Buddha’s style of Vipassana (Insight) Meditation, the original techniques used are for increasing your awareness and freeing yourself of painful mental habits. Vipassana meditation is based on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness as mentioned in the Satipatthana Sutra. Your understanding and experience of meditation will deepen. Sister Tinh Quang will give teachings on: Walking Meditation, The Three Poisons, Karma, Four Brhma Viharas, Metta, Karuna, The Five Hindrances, Dukkha, Intention, and Equanimity. Vipassana meditation is a lifelong process that requires daily practice, discipline, and patience.
Attend all or some of the classes. Those who attend all of the classes will get a certificate at the end of the course.
FEE: Dana (donation as you feel is appropriate)
