Beginning Meditation Course

with Candace Cassin

5 Tuesdays: Jan. 11, Jan. 18, Jan. 25, Feb. 1, Feb. 8; 4:00 - 5:30 pm ET

This course will be held virtually, via Zoom.

Suggested donation: $40-100 registration + teacher donation (we encourage you to consider giving teacher dana equal to or greater than what you gave for registration)*

This five-week class will offer an introduction to the Buddha’s teachings on meditation. We will practice both insight and lovingkindness meditation and discuss practical ways to establish a home practice. We will also explore ways to bring mindful awareness “off the cushion” and into everyday life. To help integrate the material, there will be suggestions for practice during the week between sessions. This class is designed especially for people who are new to meditation or who desire a review of the foundational principles and practices. The class will be held on Zoom.

Candace Cassin has been practicing Insight Meditation since 1983, and teaching at IWM since 2008. Her personal practice and teaching approach are rooted in the classical teachings, and she is especially interested in the integration of insight, wisdom, and compassion in everyday life, both on the personal and social levels. In her former incarnations she worked in the disability field and as a hospice chaplain.

*In keeping with the Buddhist tradition of dana (generosity), the suggested registration amounts for our classes and retreats do not include any payment for the teacher. The teachers are paid entirely out of the students' generosity. Please consider giving a donation to the teacher in order to support their ability to continue to share the dharma. We encourage you to consider teacher dana equal to or greater than the amount you gave for registration. You may give a donation at the time of registration and give later donations through our teacher dana link. Everyone is welcome to all of our events regardless of ability to donate.
