Touching Peace: An Online Introduction to Meditation Weekly Drop-In Session

Elaine Jackson

Open Dates


Mondays, at 4:30 – 5:30 pm PST (Pacific)

PLEASE NOTE: Sessions will resume Monday, February 8th 2021

What is it:

A meditation series

We all want peace. And if we want a peaceful end, we must use a peaceful means.
It is a fact of nature that the future is intrinsically uncertain. We don’t know what’s going to
happen. We can’t change the past and the future hasn’t arrived. We can’t do anything about
either, but we can make a difference in the present. This is where reality happens – this is
where we can make a difference in our life.
Mindful attention to the present moment allows us to see what is helpful and beneficial,
leading towards peacefulness right here, now. Learning to see what brings benefit and what
brings harm, will incline us towards developing skills that lead to more clarity and peace, and
away from those things that bring harm, obstruction and confusion.
Please join us on Mondays, for these virtual meditation gatherings as we develop those skills.
