Mon, 9/10/2012, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Free if you are a first-timer!
$10/$5 students/members if you've been to IDP before.
Why do we meditate? Why don't we meditate? How does it aid mental health and well-being? What are some of the common misconceptions about meditation? What does it really mean to practice meditation and study Buddhism?
Kate Johnson & Kim Brown will guide us through mindfulness meditation and an exploration of the benefits of practice, as well as confusion surrounding it.
This class is a great opportunity to bring a friend who hasn't been to IDP or for you yourself to come to IDP for the first time. If you come with a friend who has been here before, the class is FREE for the IDP first-timer!
Kimberly Brown studies in the traditions of Tibetan and American Buddhism, is a member and teacher at the IDP, and a graduate of the year-long IDP Teacher Training program. She practices Kriya Yoga with Alan Finger, and is learning Healing Touch, an energy medicine technique which she offers to cancer patients in Manhattan. Kimberly has degrees in physics and literature, and spent several years in post-graduate training as a psychodynamic psychotherapist.
A lifelong dancer and a yogi for many years, Kate Johnson finally learned to sit still at The Interdependence Project, where she completed teacher training in December 2011. A student in the Insight (Vipassana) meditation tradition, she will complete the Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation teacher training at Spirit Rock Meditation Center this year. Kate teaches yoga and mindfulness meditation to high school students in public schools throughout NYC, and is a co-owner of Third Root Community Health Center (www.thirdroot.org), a radically accessible holistic health care cooperative in Brooklyn, NY.
