MEDITATION for SELF-CARE, private Zen Zoom meetings
Learn how to establish a daily sitting meditation practice, for anyone seeking stress relief support in these challenging times.
Learn how to begin using meditation for self care. We will practice compassion for the mind, heart and body while learning to sit through shifting states.
To establish a practice, I recommend a week of sitting meditation for 30 minutes each day, 5-7 days a week.

Equipment and sitting environment
For chair-sitting, a straight-back chair and a firm pillow are needed and a blanket or shawl for warmth if you wish.
Floor cushions can be used as well. (For those experienced with floor sitting,) Posture tips will be given, including three basic Zen postures and how to choose the most supportive for your body and experience.
If requested, Pitaka will offer information about creating a non-distracting meditation space in your home or office.
Sessions will begin with posture support exercises for ease of sitting upright. This ease will gradually develop and deepen. You may request more meetings by repeating these steps.
