Learn If Meditation Is For You

posted Mar 17, 2013, 6:32 PM by Interfaith WS


Are you still not sure that meditation is right for you?  Here’s your chance to find out.  Join Dr. Peter Lichstein at the Shepherd’s Center at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 28 for a free introduction to Buddhist meditation in the Zen tradition.  Dr. Lichstein is professor of Internal Medicine at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. 

            This workshop will provide an introduction to the practice of zazen, the meditative tradition of complete engagement with “just sitting.”  Through brief lectures, demonstration and experiential exercises, you will explore zazen posture, awareness of breath and how to practice with the thoughts and feelings that inevitably arise in meditation.   You will also try out walking meditation (kinhin). 

You can register at  The event is sponsored by Interfaith Winston-Salem.
