Each month we will be hosting a skilled, practiced, meditation teacher so that you have the opportunity to begin or deepen your meditation practice with someone experienced in teaching the subject. This is not a series, so you are welcome to any or all of the practices, and no experience is necessary to benefit from and enjoy the sessions. These practices are by donation, and the money will support a local non-profit. This month will benefit The Warm Place.
A Perfect Meditation Practice
Do you have ideas about what would make your meditation practice perfect? In this month’s practice we’ll explore a familiar part of our personality structure* that wants to measure up to some standard of what we think is perfect (or as close to perfect as we can get!). The practice will be useful for beginners who wonder if they are doing it right, and more experienced meditators who are seeking ways to work with the inner critic, who is notorious for robbing us of our serenity. The evening will include an initial guided meditation to help you to tune into your own experience and a longer meditation with instruction and a mudra to evoke serenity. We’ll integrate the practice with group inquiry and conversation.
Your host for this practice is Terry Stevens. Terry has been immersed in the human potential movement for much of her adult life, as a business leader, writer, teacher, executive coach and a seminarian student of The Diamond Approach. She brings a variety of movement, inquiry, adult learning models and meditative practices to support clients in accessing and growing their personal presence, the foundation for sustained purpose and practical, elegant functioning in the world.
