Using a hybrid of mindfulness and loving-kindness meditation techniques, Noah will offer an experience of the teachings and practices of Buddhism. We will learn how to develop a greater sense of care for ourselves and for our world through the revolutionary spiritual practices of the Buddha. Led by Noah Levine, the workshop explores the way that true spiritual practice is an engagement with life that goes against the norms of our confused society and is therefore an act of rebellion. This ancient path of awakening our own deepest wisdom and compassion is accessible to all who choose it.
This week of Buddhist meditation will focus on practices of mindfulness and loving-kindness. We will learn how to develop a greater sense of care for ourselves and for our world through the revolutionary spiritual practices of the Buddha. Each day there will be meditation instruction in sitting and walking, and teachings on the Buddhist path of awakening. Through the practices of mindfulness and loving-kindness, we can gain deeper access to our innate ability to live with ease and freedom. This course is suitable for both beginning and long-term practitioners. All are welcome.
