About this course:

This is the introduction to a series of courses on Buddhist meditation traditions, beginning with the foundational contemplative practice of ?amatha (often called “calm-abiding” or “mindfulness”) meditations, but not one of the New-Age or yoga-studio variants. Its technology was developed over thousands of years by masters trained in the investigation of one’s own mind to strengthen openness, clarity, resilience/strength and balance/stability in daily life. From the Buddhist perspective, meaningful and sustained benefits require the “right view” and intentionality of practice. In this course, we discuss the philosophy, science and instructions for ?amatha meditations; and will interactively establish the proper posture/body, attention/mind and adjustments for effective fruition. Actual meditations are guided, appropriate for beginners and advanced practitioners, and can be performed in your classroom chairs or on your own mats and cushions.
