Abiding in the Stillness, Silence, and Spaciousness of Awareness

10-Week Class

Two Registration Options:  Live Classroom or Audio via the Internet

September 22 - November 24

10 Tuesday evenings     7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

sunrise over a fieldThe practice of meditation shows us there is no experience to be having other than the one we are having right now. We can give up seeking and struggling, and allow ourselves to feel the relief of just letting be, letting go into the continuous experience of Now. When we do, thoughts slow down and we discover more space in our mind. The usually unnoticed background of stillness, silence, and spaciousness begins to come into the foreground of our heightened awareness. The wisdom sayings “there’s nothing to get” and “the peace you are seeking is already within you” start to make sense. The way forward is learning to abide in the stillness, silence, and spaciousness of awareness.

And what is it that abides? What is this spacious awareness? The answer to this inquiry is where true, lasting, inner peace and happiness can be found.

To get the most out of this learning experience, class participants are strongly encouraged to attend the companion retreat described below. Take advantage of our combined registration discount when you sign up for both.
