Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation Course starts Mar. 18th

There will be a 6-week Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation course starting on March 18th taught by Lori Wong. The course will include progressive instructions, exercises and practice which will build from each previous week.  The course is designed for those new to meditation but can also be used to deepen or support practice for those who are already familiar with mindfulness meditation.

All are welcome to drop-in, although the greatest benefit will be for those who commit to attend all of the 6-week series.  The teachings and meetings are offered freely, without charge, as a gift to all who wish to come.  If you wish to sit on a cushion or mat, please bring your own. The floor is carpeted. Chairs will be available.

WHEN: Six Sundays, March 18 to April 29 from 12:30-2:30 pm (no meeting on Easter Sunday, April 8)
WHERE: Education Building (next to the colorful water tank), Room A or B, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Stanislaus County on 2172 Kiernan Ave. between Carver and Dale Rds., Modesto, CA.

Donations are gratefully accepted, but the wish is for those donations to come joyfully from whatever generosity may arise naturally from your heart. There is no expectation or obligation to make a donation.

Lori Wong has been practicing mindfulness meditation since 2003 and is a Community Dharma Leader in training through Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, CA.  Her mentor teachers in the program are Gil Fronsdal of Insight Meditation Center (IMC) in Redwood City and Eugene Cash of SF Insight in San Francisco.  She is a a board member of the Sati Center for Buddhist Studies and a founding director of the Buddhist Insight Network.  She also leads an Insight Meditation sitting group on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm at the Unity Church in Modesto.
