Course Description:

This course is based on Gil Fronsdal’s six-week Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation class.  We spend a week each on working with breath, body, emotions, thoughts, mind-states and daily life.  The course includes recorded talks, written materials, daily emails and weekly reflections.  In addition, 5 weeks of personal support is offered to participants by experienced meditation mentors either by email or video conferencing at a pre-arranged time.  (Gil does not offer any personal support).

  • The course material is not live, so it can be done at any time during the day.
  • The course may also be Audited without personal teacher support.
  • If you choose to register for teacher support, please take this commitment seriously: a volunteer experienced meditator will be reserving weekly time for you.
