Meditation Workshop
David A. Cofrin Asian Art Wing

This 90-minute workshop will provide instruction in three useful meditation techniques, discuss scientific research supporting the practice and review the philosophical implications of the transformation of consciousness. We will engage in forms of meditation whose roots derive from practices in India, Tibet, China and Japan. Their basic forms remain the same over the centuries, but they have been updated, understood and explained in the context of Western science, medicine and psychology. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and be available to stay for the entire workshop. Instructor Patrick Breslin, a faculty member at Santa Fe College, has been practicing and teaching meditation for over 40 years
