Mindful First Mondays with Michael Cohen


About This Class

Of the three jewels, or pillars, of Buddhism–meditation, the teachings, and spiritual community (sangha)–sangha may be most important.  Maintaining a regular meditation practice can be challenging. Practicing as a group makes it easier…and more enjoyable.

The intention of this group is to provide a safe space where people can find comfort and connection in community; a place to share what’s on our hearts without fear of judgment or contradiction.  Gathering on first Mondays, the hope is to set the table for a mindful month.

What You Can Expect

The class will consist of a guided meditation, a sharing circle, and a brief talk or reading followed by a discussion.

I look forward to being with all of you.

This Class will be offered via Zoom only.
