Introduction to Meditation (Sundays)
Every Sunday morning we have a guided meditation, a Dharma talk and some QnA. This series focuses on teachings of the Buddha and application of these teachings to our modern lifestyles. This is perfect for friends or family who may have an interest in Buddhism, mindfulness or meditating, but little experience or training. Its also a wonderful opportunity to encounter the richness of being in the present moment.
This meeting is open to students of all levels and is especially appropriate for beginners. Class is taught by Gwen Hanner and others in the community. (Check out Gwen's teacher bio; link to external site).
The location is Mind, Body, Spirit, Health at 5701 N. Florida Ave, Tampa, FL 33604.
Continuing Meditation Series (Wednesdays)
This session is lively and interesting, and is especially helpful to those sorting out the cultural influences on Buddhism and seeking to deepen their meditation practice by focusing on the core message of the Buddha.
This meeting is especially appropriate for those who have been meditating regularly and want crystal clear and direct instructions for tuning up their practice or breaking through false conceptions about meditation practice. The suggested daily sitting requirement to participate in this class is one hour per day.
Sessions are ongoing and are focused on a deeper calming, a broader view of one's experience and preparation for direct realization of the nature of all suffering. These teachings are best received at a level deeper than pure intellect and this is facilitated by a commitment to improve ones outlook through the process of mental development - namely meditation.
The Wednesday evening group is geared towards those with a regular meditation practice. There may be less guided meditation and more in-depth teaching. Bring your notepads! Please feel free to join, even if you feel you are a beginner - do not let the title or description dissuade you from participating. It is simply geared towards those with a little more experience on the cushion and a stated commitment to regular practice. You may wish to try several of the meetings to find the best fit for you.
Class is taught by Michael (link to external site).
