Volunteer Leader, Robin Rieck, will be leading a free course that explores exactly what meditation is all about. The course will begin the first week of June and will meet weekly throughout the month. 

Session 1: Exploring the notion of each person’s personal conceptual reality, that is, each person’s personally created “Matrix”.

Session 2: How do we each create our own personal “Matrix”.

Session 3: How a specifically focused mindfulness practice is one tool for penetrating ones resistance to mediation and uncovering your own personally created “Matrix”. 

Session 4: What happens when people experience themselves creating (and recreating over and over) their own personal “Matrix”, seeing it clearly as your own creation rather than what is real “out there.”

Session 5: Exploring the specifics of a mindfulness practice. 

Each Session will also include 5-10 minutes of mindfulness practice.
