Peace of Mind in the Time of COVID:
Starting and Maintaining a Consistent Meditation Practice
January 4 through February 5
with Jeff Goin
Have you been waiting for the right time to learn to meditate?
Are you familiar with meditation but, for whatever reason, haven’t been able to establish a consistent meditation practice?
Have you been struggling with stress, anxiety, frustration, and boredom as a result of the pandemic?
If so, here’s your opportunity.
Beginning on Monday, January 4, Jeff Goin will be facilitating a 30-day online, non-denominational meditation program that will provide both instruction and group meditation sessions.
Monday, January 4; 8:30 to 9:00 AM – Meditation Instruction, Class 1
Tuesday, January 5; 8:30 to 9:00 AM – Meditation Instruction, Class 2
Wednesday, January 6; 8:30 to 9:00 AM – Meditation Instruction, Class 3
Thursday, January 7; 8:30 to 9:00 AM – Meditation Instruction, Class 4
Friday, January 8; 8:30 to 9:00 AM – Meditation Instruction, Class 5
Note: All five classes will be online.
From Monday, January 11 through Friday, February 5, online group meditations will be held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 8:30 until 9:00 AM. The first 15 minutes of each session will be a group meditation (with a little bit of guidance from Jeff); the second 15 minutes of the session will be set aside for Q&A. Participation in these meditations is optional (you can attend some, all, or none of the sessions). Also, you are welcome to participate in the meditation, and then skip the Q&A part of the session.
What to Know Before Your Register
Theories on the length of time it takes to form a habit vary; some say a habit is formed after 21 days. Others say that an activity becomes habitual anywhere from 18 to 254 days. Whichever it is, it’s certain that the more consistently we engage in an activity, the more familiar we become with that activity. The more familiar we are with the activity, the better we understand it and the easier it is for us to perform it successfully.
It is with the foregoing in mind that participants are requested to submit a written (either hand-written or email) “Agreement” to meditate no fewer than ten minutes, but no more than 20 minutes, every day over the 30-day period. The five days of instruction will count toward the 30-day commitment. Additionally, participants are requested to attend all five of the meditation classes starting on January 4.
