What you'll learn in this horticultural therapy class:

In this class we will learn basic meditation techniques that give rise to clear and loving states of mind, not only to "relax," but also to more clearly tap into the richness of being awake. The session will include brief, guided meditations.

Everything in our life is in continuous flux; yet we try to manipulate this changing world to attain happiness: "As soon as I finish this work project I can finally relax," or "When the weather becomes sunnier then I'll feel much happier." It always seems, however, that a new problem crops up to take the place of the issue we've just resolved. From the Buddhist standpoint, happiness is not dependent on unreliable material conditions, but rather on the cultivation of a mind that is relaxed, kind, and clear.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 4/11/2016
Lisa Wang was a great instructor. I could feel the effects of her mediation practice in her demeanor and presentation. Unfortunately coursehorse advertised the class to be from 10:30-12:30 but it actually ended at 12. Would like to take a part 2 but feel like the description needs to be more accurate about the time.

The instructor was great. It was very interactive but the class was 30 minutes shorter than advertised. I think this is a reflection of coursehorse and not the class itself. Would go again but feel like partial compensation should be refunded due to error.
