New Meditation Course
In Person
January 21st & 28th
10:30 am to 12:30pm

Start the New Year off well with this Meditation course on Sunday, January 21 and 28, 10:30am – 12:30pm at the Nagaloka Buddhist Center in Portland. Suitable for beginners and those who wish to recharge their practice.

We’ll primarily practice two forms of meditation: Mindfulness of Breathing and Loving-Kindness (aka Metta Bhavana). Topics include purpose of meditation, meditation posture, overcoming common challenges in meditation, and creating an effective home practice. As time allows, you’ll be introduced to Buddhism and the Nagaloka Buddhist Center.

Volunteer teacher: Nancy Artz (retired professor, who has 30 years experience meditating and has completed ordination training in the Triratna Buddhist Community).

REGISTRATION & FEES: The course is offered on the basis of a sliding scale donation, with all funds supporting the non-profit Nagaloka Buddhist Center. For those with the financial ability, the suggested donation for the 2-week course is $20-$50.
