This is a 1 hour guided Meditation class led outside of Mountain View Studio located at 20 Mountain View Ave., Woodstock, NY. This class is for people who wish to make changes in their lives, wish to quiet their minds, and want to meditate with a group of like minded people. The class is led by Dan Globus, Director and lead Meditation teacher of The Compassion Center. The goal of the class is to be guided into a very relaxed, quiet and still place where you work on a change that you wish to make in your life (e.g. removing anxiety, stress, anger, bringing more joy into your life, finding happiness, and bringing success into your life).
The class will be taught outdoors on a beautiful wood platform, that accommodates 6 people on Meditation cushions and/or chairs, and there is a landscaped area with chairs, tree stumps, and rock benches that will accommodate approximately 14 people. All seating adheres to social distancing standards of at least 6 feet apart. We ask that you initially wear masks. We may be able to remove masks if people attending this event agree to it. Please be considerate of other attendees.
Each class has a “theme” to it. In some classes, we will work on bringing loving kindness to ourselves and others. In some classes, we will work on reducing and eliminating anxiety. Some classes will be dedicated to addictions (substance, food, and more). There will be very special classes on loss and grief and reconnecting with past loved ones. We will work on anger, its causes and how to control it. And in every class, we will bring calm and stillness to our always overactive minds. We will learn to quiet the monkey mind.
If you are new to Meditation, or have never learned Meditation from a qualified instructor, you are most welcome to come to this class. However, please consider taking one of our Learn to Meditate classes. These classes are taught to groups on a regular basis. Just sign up for our newsletter and you can see the upcoming classes. We also offer private Learn to Meditate classes.
