The practice of Buddhism requires meditation. We all learn how to do it, usually fairly early on. Many of us go on to start meditation groups. But the practice of teaching meditation is a bit of a different matter. How do we learn to guide others into their own meditative practice, especially in a group setting?

This nine-week course explores teaching various forms of meditation, with an emphasis on teaching mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness, when learned properly, is an excellent gateway to self-awareness and the ability to experience discomfort without an accompanying existential crisis. Our main course book focuses on mindfulness as a road to exploration, with individual lessons throughout the course touching other practices.
