Universal Features of Meditation with Paul Fleischman
Tue, Apr 26 at 7:00 PM, FREE

This lecture will describe six common features that all meditations share: self observation, non-violent social attitudes, the ability to question the validity of one’s own thoughts, valuing community, self-directed living, and resilience in the face of frustration and loss.

This lecture with author, psychiatrist, and Vipassana meditation teacher, Dr. Paul R. Fleischman, is free and open to the general public. The format of the talk includes a one hour lecture which will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A session.
