Topic: Obstacles to meditation
We might feel like we're singularly ill equipped to meditate, that our minds are just too wild or our schedule is just too full. Our modern lives are full of speediness and entertainment, so it's not surprising that creeps in when it's time to sit. This workshop will help students acknowledge obstacles and habitual mental patterns on the cushion and give them skills to approach their daily lives with a bigger vision.
Kevin Bogle is a meditation teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition. He began his meditation practice in 2005 and more recently has completed over 150 hours of meditation teacher training at the NYC Shambhala Center and The Interdependence Project. In addition to teaching regularly in New York, he has established and led Heart of Recovery groups for four years, teaching practices to help people with addictive behaviors and beliefs.
Kevin believes that meditation is the key to help us access our innate goodness, experience genuine relaxation, and express our authentic selves. As a landscape architect for the City of New York, Kevin is dedicated to creating enlightened spaces for society to flourish. Kevin lives in New York City, where he does not hesitate to throw a personal dance party when the mood calls for it.
