Dr. Pete’s Meditation Class Format

“This class is highly experiential, as it is my belief that experience is by far the best teacher. It will include foundational didactic teaching followed by a meditation practice that allows the student to experience the concept(s) being taught. Discussion about the practice follows so that appropriate integration of the material in the students’ lives can occur. The student will learn excellent beginning steps to confidently establish a meaningful personal home practice.”
