2013-03-16 Concentration in Contemplative Practice 50:40
  Richard Mendius
The latest brain research has begun to confirm the central insights of the Buddha and other great teachers. And it’s suggesting ways you can help your brain to enter deeper states of mindfulness, quiet, and concentration. Suffering, joy, and freedom all depend on what happens within your nervous system. Skillful practice thus means being skillful with your own brain. This experiential workshop will offer user-friendly information with lots of practical methods. No background in neuroscience or mindfulness is needed, though teaching are also appropriate for health care professionals. We’ll cover: --- Implications from brain research for steadying the mind... quieting it... and bringing it to singleness --- The brain during the jhanas or other states of deep concentration --- How to help lay the neurological foundation for liberating insight

We’ll use the Metta Sutta, The Buddha’s Sermon in Impartial Kindness, as the template overview for practicing liberation from suffering. We’ll have time to study the sermon, practice both mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation, and have discussions and Q&A about obstacles to practice. This program is suitable for beginners.
