Join us for a meditation workshop which brings happiness both on the cushion and in everyday life. In the first two sessions, we'll establish calm. In the following two we find our own happiness by seeing the happiness around us. The workshop will enhance your recognition of calm and well-being, allowing joy to grow naturally. The sessions include guided meditation, group interaction, and lots of discussion. This class is designed both for beginners and experienced meditators from all traditions. Beth’s teaching follows in the traditions of Sharon Salzberg, Joseph Goldstein and of Pema Chodron. The workshop takes place in a serene, immersive environment: Located just across from the Philadelphia Art Museum with a stunning view of the city and Fairmount Park. The 20th-floor setting offers abundant light and air, and the space is thoughtfully designed for comfort during meditation. The teacher will provide all necessary chairs, cushions, and shawls to ensure your individual comfort throughout the practice. It is a short drive from Mt. Airy; there is easy on-street parking.

Beth Adelson

teaches mediation because it makes people happy and effective in everyday life. Her work on the happy aspects of meditation was recognized with a Harvard Centennial medal and endorsed by the Dalai Lama. Early on, Beth was a dancer in NYC where she also began practicing yoga and Zen. She was then trained as a cognitive scientist at Harvard. This brought her to study the effects of meditation and then to training in Buddhist meditation & eventually to be asked to teach. She is the founding teacher at 24th St. Sangha. Her current daily sitting meditation & movement practice focuses on both joy and equanimity.
