Classes of interest to all
  MINDFULNESS MEDITATION
Join the Sunday Morning Mindfulness Meditation sangha at YOP. Sessions begin with 30 minutes of lightly guided sitting meditation (cushion or chair). Instruction will be provided to newcomers to the practice prior to the sitting and any questions can be raised. Following the sitting, Claire will offer a talk on an aspect of the dharma drawn from the Mindfulness (Theravada Buddhist) tradition. Discussion is warmly welcomed. We will close with a short final meditation, often focusing on metta, or loving kindness.
