NEST Holding Class Series On Spiritual Development, Psychological Development and Buddhist Meditation

North East Seattle Together

NEST (Northeast Seattle Together)  which supports Northeast Seattle elder neighbors through a network of volunteers and vendors, is holding a class series starting today at 2pm through December 9 on Spiritual Development, Psychological Development, Buddhist Insight Meditation: A Consideration and Conversation taught by Joe Pearl Ph.D., NEST Volunteer.. 

The information says:
Part information, part dialogue, and part Buddhist meditation practice, this class will examine these questions through the lens of Easter psychology/philosophy of Buddhism, along with the Western psychologies/philosophies of psychoanalysis, existentialism, and constructivism.  
You will learn Buddhist Insight Meditation (also known as Mindfulness, or Vipassana), a style of mediation that is now widely practiced in the West, and which is becoming increasingly influential in Western Psychology and psychotherapy. Lurking in the background of everything else we talk about will be the fundamental question: “What is the ultimate purpose of life?” Open to the Public.

Cost is $50 for nonmembers and $30 for NEST members.

NEST is a non-profit grassroots operation serving NE Seattle seniors by creating a "virtual village" to helping them be able to stay in their own homes and neighborhoods they love. Volunteers provide companionship, care, as well as help seniors with a wide range of services, including gardening, computer help and more. to seniors aging in their homes. Ongoing classes (fitness, etc) are also offered, as well as access to events, transportation services, and various services (such as estate planners) who provide their services at a discount to members.
