I’m very excited to announce that Dr Anthony Varriano, M.D. will be bringing his 20 years of experience in studying and practicing Vipassana (Insight) Meditation to Jen Murphy Fitness.
In this six week course, participants will be introduced to the basics of mindfulness meditation. Guided instructions in the four foundations of mindfulness, breath awareness, and open awareness will be emphasized throughout the sessions. Additionally, a seamless “daily life” practice will be a core theme encouraged throughout the classes.
It is strongly encouraged that participants carve out time in their life to cultivate a regular sitting practice, and begin to see how awareness in the activities of daily life are fertile ground for clear seeing and self-understanding. The skills introduced in class can be utilized amidst the course of daily life, pointing to a more free and engaged experience of what life presents. Free guided audio mediations are available to help support your home practice.
While the emphasis will be on beginner instruction, this course is open to all people regardless of their level or practice. Learn to face pain, illness and stress with more clarity and understanding with the intention of living with a greater sense of acceptance, ease and freedom.
The full course will run for six weeks, Sunday, April 23 – May 28, 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. The fee is $60
*Note: this course is open to all regardless of ability to pay. Please make arrangements with the instructor.
