In this accredited Centers for Spiritual Living course, the student delves into 8 different meditation practices over the course of 8 weeks. As a survey course it is designed to expose participants to a wide variety of meditations and help answer questions such as, How do I meditate? Experienced meditators, as well as those that have perhaps set a regular practice down, that are looking for encouragement and an inspiring boost to their practice are as well-suited to this course as newcomers to this ancient spiritual practice. Ultimately, the purpose of this class is to touch different meditation styles in such a way that students can identify one or more that work best for their personality and lifestyle.
