Meditation and Ethics are the foundation of an integrated flourishing practice. To meditate is to be able to look increasingly more clearly at how we live our life and the choices we make. To cultivate meaningful values and actions in our lives instills a firm ground to establish mindfulness and ease in meditation.
Exploring these deeply, with a teacher and community, is often considered an important step in committing oneself to the practice.
Whether you are new to mindfulness or a seasoned meditator, this course will expand your practice, develop a deeper understanding of how to place practice at the center of your life, and build a commitment to your daily meditation practice and living.
Informed by Yoga and Buddhist traditions, as well as current research in psychology and neuroscience, Jen will guide you through a personal exploration of what it means to bring these practices alive in modern life.
