JUST BREATHE

Every Monday in Wicker Park
6:30 to 7:00 pm

Drop-in Class

Join us for simple guided meditation. This class is perfect for those who've never meditated before, and for those who want to enjoy guided meditation with a group. We focus on basic meditation techniques that can be easily integrated into daily life and are helpful for both the beginner and more experienced meditator.

In meditation, we concentrate on a single positive thought in order to gain an experience of inner peace and happiness. Through training our mind in this way, we gradually gain the ability to hold on to these states of mind outside of meditation, no matter what difficulties modern life brings our way. (Read more about meditation here.)

No previous meditation experience is necessary. Everyone welcome!

FOUNDATION PROGRAM

NOT a drop-in class

The Foundation Program (FP) is a uniquely structured study program that enables us to gain a deep understanding and experience of Buddhist teachings and meditation practices. It is ideal for those who have a general understanding of Buddhism, but who wish to learn more. Each class incorporates meditation, prayer, teaching and discussion. As this is a study program, each student is encouraged to join only if they can attend on a regular basis. For full information, including registration info, see the FP in Wicker Park Page.
