Meditation is about a compassionate openness and the ability to be with oneself and one’s situation through all kinds of experiences. In meditation you’re open to whatever life presents you with. It’s about touching the earth and coming back to being right here. ~Pema Chodron
Several Move2Center community members have inquired about restoring meditation classes to our schedule.
In response to this request we're delighted to offer a FREE two-week online Introduction to Meditation series at 10:30am Saturday, April 17 and 10:30am Saturday, April 24 facilitated by our dear friend Lilliana Zuyovich.
About Intro to Meditation
"Meditation is easy to learn and can be incorporated into any lifestyle or busy schedule," Lilliana says.
Whether you are new to meditation or if you’re already familiar with meditation and want to get a
refresher, this is a perfect opportunity.
"There are many wonderful and effective forms of meditation. I teach Shamatha sitting meditation as taught by the Buddha. Shamatha is a Sanskrit term meaning “calm abiding”. It is the practice of training the mind to be present, settling into the here and now, and letting go."
In this session Lilliana offers instruction on the fundamentals: how to settle into your meditation practice, how to sit, position your body and posture, how to align with your breath (conscious breathing), and how to work with your mind and thoughts.
Ultimately the intent is to help you gain a clear understanding of what meditation is, how it works, and how to start and establish an effective meditation practice.
When: 10:30am Saturdays April 17 and 24
Details: Sign up on our calendar and a Zoom link will be provided to you by Lilliana prior to each session.
Be prepared for this one-hour class by setting up a comfortable place to sit, using cushions to sit cross legged. Or you can sit on a couch or a chair in whatever way is comfortable for you.
Move2Center and Lilliana are delighted to offer these sessions to all participants free of charge. However in the spirit of "calm abiding" we encourage participants to support one of these organizations working to bring health, wellness and equity into people's lives.

Meet Your Teacher: Lilliana Zuyovich CHT, CHN
I first learned to meditate when I was 5 years old, I remember feeling and exclaiming it was “one of the best days of my life!” I loved learning to meditate as a child, and then as a teen I had the fortune of being taught several illuminating forms of meditation that profoundly changed my life. My devotion continued to flourish which led me to the Shambhala Meditation Center in Seattle where I formally trained for 4 years.
I deeply value meditation, and have had a dedicated and consistent practice for many years. It continues to inspire me and I feel privileged to share its benefits.
I also provide private one-on-one and group meditation instruction.
