The practice of meditation is to learn to be fully present in each moment of our lives. So often we go through the day
without being present, responding simply with habitual patterns of impulsivity or reactivity and preconceptions of how things should be.

Meditation is an opportunity to break through these patterns and preconceptions to gain a larger perspective in which openness and understanding can arise. From this perspective we can see things as they are and live in a more relaxed way with full attention on each moment.

All courses and workshops are held in The Meditation Center in Wilmington (across the hall from the Empowered Yoga studio) unless otherwise noted.

The Wisdom of Emotions
Contact: Alison Driscoll
October 15th- November 12th
Thursdays: 7:00-8:45pm.
Location: Meditation Center, Wilmington
Tuition: $60/5 weeks

Emotions can dominate us in obvious and subtle ways. Through the simple, yet profound practice of meditation, based on the teachings of the Buddha, we will explore working with the pain and confusion of emotions without suppressing feelings or acting them out in ways that are harmful to ourself or others. Through this approach the energy of emotions can then become the ground for developing wisdom and compassion.
