Isn’t there more to meditation than what I experience? Where is the bliss and ‘wow’? If you have ever asked similar questions, this course may be for you.
In this six week course we will work together to go further in our meditation practice. We will explore topics customized to the participants experience and needs.
These will include issues such as:
- keeping up a regular practice
- obstacles or challenges in meditation (distraction, difficult mental states, etc.)
- physical or postural issues
- forms of meditation; finding what is helpful
- focus and concentration
- seeing differently; insight
Through this course Amala hopes that participants will feel confident and able to take their meditation to new levels in their experience and that all will find much to enjoy in their practice.
Open to anyone who has been practicing Mindfulness of Breathing (Anapanasati) and Metta Bhavana (loving-kindness) meditations for a while – from a few months to a few years.
At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.
