What this course is about: We will be holding an 6-week Introduction to Buddhist Principles and Practices course starting Wednesday November 4. Each class stands alone, so it is acceptable to attend one class or all of them (though it is helpful to attend as many as possible, since there is some overlap).
Each class will include: guided meditation (15 minutes), instruction, opportunities to practice, and time for discussion, questions and answers. These classes are designed to teach beginners the basics of mindfulness, meditation and Buddhist philosophy. What we do: We are a community that offers instruction related to mindfulness meditation, including classes, day long workshops, extended courses (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) and occasional weekend retreats.
We are affiliated with the Insight Meditation Community of Washington (IMCW) and the teaching of Tara Brach, Jonathan Foust and Hugh Byrne.
Each class will include: guided meditation, instruction, opportunities to practice, and time for discussion, questions and answers. We practice Insight Meditation, a style of meditation that helps the mind attain deeper levels of calm concentration through sustained attention on the breath, then combines this with the crucial aspect of insight through contemplation of the mind and body and all of their changing and impermanent senses, emotions and thoughts. Along with these and a long list of other psychological benefits, meditation has also been shown to reduce stress hormones in the body, lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety, alleviate depression and boost the immune system.

Our 8-Week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses help students initiate and develop an ongoing daily mindfulness meditation practice.
Mira has been facilitating contemplative and expressive arts, and spiritual growth workshops, classes, and retreats since 1994. Wherever you park, just enter the building and you will see signs directing you to the classroom.
Typically we hold an Introduction to Insight Meditation series, an 8-Week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses, and occasional daylong and weekend workshops and retreats. Insight Meditation trains us to live more fully in the present moment, enables us to experience life from a greater stillness, and aids us in relating to both ourselves and others with increased clarity, compassion, calmness and creativity, and less fear, anxiety and stress. These 8-week courses are designed to help students develop strategies to reduce stress and to relate to their day-to-day experiences in a more calm and creative manner. These are groups that meet outside the normal class hours to discuss Buddhist principles more in depth and to share about how these ideas apply to their personal lives.

These groups also help foster deeper connection to other members of the community (sangha).
She was co-founder and co-director of the Hearta€™s Journey Wellness Center in Towson for five years. While the forms of meditation we practice are rooted in Buddhist teachings, the study and practice of mindfulness and insight meditation is applicable to anyone from any background or religion, and all are welcome.
