This daylong workshop is the perfect opportunity to establish (or re-establish) a mindfulness meditation practice. With IDP's secular and modern approach to time-honored techniques, you'll learn the power and wisdom of the Buddhist mind training tradition in an easy and accessible way. 

Talented teacher-practioners Kim and Rey will help you develop your qualities of concentration, insight, and compassion with simple methods anyone can learn and understand. We'll discuss obstacles and difficult feelings that may arise in meditation practice, and provide useful tools and advice to successfully create and maintain a regular mindfulness routine.  

Scientific research indicates that practicing meditation regularly has many benefits, including a stress relief, anxiety management, and better concentration and focus. You can read more about this here and here.

This workshop is especially designed for new meditators or those with experience who would like to refresh their knowledge and understanding.  We'll have periods of sitting and walking meditation, and time for discussion and Q&A. 

No experience necessary. Beginners are welcome. Chairs and cushions will be provided.
