Meditation Workshop

  • The Hive 205 NW Franklin Ave Bend United States (map)

In this two hour active learning workshop we'll practice basic meditation using the breath as an anchor for attention. We'll spend most of the time practicing, so you're very welcome to attend whether you're a beginner or experienced with meditation.

You'll walk away from this workshop with an understanding of:

- Techniques and benefits of breath focus meditation. (If breath isn't
working as a focal point, we'll try other techniques.)
- Contemplative science and what it can tell us about meditation. For
example, what is the default mode network and is there an
alternative? (yes :)
- Spiritual perspectives on the mind and identity
- How and why to set up and maintain a meditation practice
