Do you feel that you are the only one committed to your relationship or that you could do better with someone else? Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be in a relationship with someone like you? Do these feelings occur in every relationship you have? If so, it's time to look within your relationship and not outside of it. Whether you're 19 or 90, come learn that it's never too late to make things better. In this experiential workshop led by Nancy O'Hara and Michael Levine, you and your partner will learn to be together in a new and exciting way.

Introduction to Meditation:
Creating a Daily Practice
A daily meditation practice is an important key to serenity. In this class, author, teacher and Zen life coach Nancy O'Hara will show us how to establish and maintain a daily practice. Using Zen teachings, zazen (sitting in dynamic stillness); and mindfulness (present moment awareness) we will cultivate our practice together and begin to create greater peace and harmony in our lives.
The class will include instruction on how to sit still in the correct posture to help develop concentration and self-discipline; breathing exercises to increase focus, clarity and equanimity; and movement exercises (gentle yoga and walking meditation) to make clear that meditation is not a static activity, but rather a strategy for mindfulness in all situations. Each class will include sitting in silence, mindful listening, reading spiritual literature and sharing experience.
