This class will explore the basic teachings of the Buddha in both meditation practice and daily life. We will introduce and deepen the practice of Mindfulness, with the aim of integrating Mindfulness into our lives. Each session will include guided meditation instruction, talks on fundamental Buddhist teachings and time for questions and discussion. This class is appropriate for those new to meditation and for those wishing to refine their existing practice. We welcome people of all backgrounds, abilities, racial/cultural identities, sexual orientations and gender identities.

Since we want our classes to be accessible to as many sangha members as possible, we offer our classes on a sliding scale registration fee basis. For those unable to afford the low end of the sliding scale, some limited income and scholarship slots are available (please call 415-727-6220 prior to the first class if the registration fee is an obstacle to your participation). • Please consider the highest level that you can donate in order to support those who have fewer resources. • We ask for your commitment to the full class series. Series classes build on one another; your commitment supports coherence of the teachings and allows the participants to mature as a group.
