Intro to Meditation – 10 week class

10-Week Class $235 ($225 early)
January 30, 2019 – April 3, 2019
Wednesdays at 6:30pm (Note this class replaces the Wednesday at 6:30 tai chi class for the duration.)

Through Taoist Meditation one learns how to cope with stress; to reach one’s own potential, and to develop a peaceful mind. Happiness, peace and health start with mind and body being in harmony.

The stretches and self-massage taught and practiced in Meditation Classes also contribute directly to one’s practice of the Tai Chi form. Grandmaster Chu’s technique of Taoist meditation is explained in his book, Chu Meditation.

A five-step meditation technique is taught for developing a quiet, empty mind. Class begins with stretching and a discussion of the Taoist vision of life, in part to illuminate similarities and differences with Confucianism, Buddhism, and other religious practices. Silent meditation builds from five minutes in the first class to half an hour in the last class. Each class concludes with open discussion and self-massage.

 

Prerequisite: None.
