Meditation for Everyday Living: Bringing Ease into Our Lives

Whether you are brand new to meditation or have an established practice of this transformative way of being, join us for a morning or evening session of simple ease and peace. Instructor Jan Hodgman notes “the basis of meditation is bringing our awareness to what’s right here in the moment, just as it is. It’s really quite simple to be satisfied. All we need to do is to connect with what is here right now and see that we don’t need anything more than what is already available to us. We’ll explore being with our breath, in an easy natural way and how this can even be done in walking meditation. No experience necessary and we’ll sit in chairs! If you have a cushion you like to use for meditation that is welcome, too.” Jan Hodgman, MA, has meditated for more than 50 years and spent eight years in a Zen monastery in Japan. She loves to remind students that it’s not necessary to go anywhere to experience the simple joy of being. Pre-registration is required by calling 360-814-2424.
