MEDITATION for SELF-CARE, a daily Zen Zoom class
Learn how to establish a daily sitting meditation practice in one week, then renew if you wish. This class is for anyone seeking stress relief support.
Learn how to begin using meditation for stress management or improve your meditation practice to become more skillful at self-sourcing more ease. Give meditation a try for common mind-made suffering and for situation-generated stress of these times.
We will practice compassion for the mind, heart and body while learning to soften and shift internal states.
Begin with a week of sitting meditation for 30 minutes each morning at 10 AM. We will practice a few minutes of posture support exercises before starting the guided meditation.

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 the various posture tips will apply.) Email for a recommendation to purchase the most supportive floor cushions.
All participants will automatically be muted for silence and off video for privacy while the whole group receives video guidance from Pitaka.
The first class in each 7 day series will include information about creating a non-distracting meditation space. Every class will begin with posture support exercises for ease of sitting upright. This ease will gradually develop or deepen so I hope you continue sitting with me each morning.
