Silent Meditation Day

Apologies if you were directed to this page instead of the Silent Meditation Day August 27 -

here is the correct link



You are invited once again to join us at the SFBC for a very simple, silent day of meditation practice.  You can join for the whole day or any portion of it - just please be sure to arrive during a break, as we will be unable to let you in otherwise. 

The Wisdom of the Breathing Body, with Vidyamala

We are very fortunate to be hosting this meditation morning with Vidyamala, from her home in the UK.

The focus for the morning will be the breath. Vidyamala will lead an exploration into the physiology of breathing and introduce methods that calm and balance the nervous system, build resilience and strength, and enhance our meditation practice.

This workshop is for you if: you are working with stress or pain; you want support to go deeper with your meditation; or you just want to take advantage of this rare opportunity to practice with Vidyamala.
