Six Saturdays, July 26-August 30 


Learn to meditate and naturally grow your confidence, awareness, and compassion, while also learning about a different object from the Asian collection each week! With the growth of Japanese Buddhism from the eighth century onwards, meditative practices were brought to and further developed in Japan, and became very popular among the samurai. During the twelfth century, the samurai embraced Zen Buddhism and subsequently discovered the benefits of meditation, giving the samurai warrior the mental edge that his enemies found extremely challenging.

Meditation instructors from the Shambhala Center of Birmingham will lead the weekly sessions.
