Introduction to Reducing Stress by Blending Mindfulness Meditation With Compassion and Loving Kindness

Four-Week series: Tuesdays, January 14–February 4, 7:30 – 8:45 p.m.

This series will give you an opportunity to become familiar with basic techniques, language and applicable skills of Mindfulness Meditation while reducing stress by directing thoughts in ways that cultivate experiences of open hearted friendliness, kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity. 

Instructions will be given various postures including; sitting, kneeling, standing and gentle movement. Sitting in a chair is encouraged for anyone finding the floor uncomfortable. Each class also includes a session of restorative deep relaxation in the reclining posture.

Jon blends a secular approach to teaching meditation with traditional language from the dharma. Hs short talks explore how meditation not only lowers stress levels but also restores a sense of balance in our busy lives. From the outset he invites each of us to answer the question, “Over the next four weeks, how might I learn to genuinely enjoy a meditation practice, both on and off the cushion?”

Chairs, sitting cushions, blankets, eye masks and other necessary props will be provided. We suggest that whenever possible you wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing.

Please contact Jon if you have questions. 

This venue is accessible to those with mobility impairments.
