OK, I’m Mindful-Now What? with Andrew Holecek (virtual). 6-8 p.m. Wednesdays from January 5-March 9. Price: $200. Virtual Event URL: bit.ly/3FeDwDZ

The mindfulness revolution is sweeping the globe, and has much to offer. But as important as mindfulness is, it is limited. This course offers a healthy critique of mindfulness, and a survey of the many meditations that transcend (but include) it. This course will introduce you to analytic meditation, metta, tonglen, open awareness, integral meditation, meditation “snacks,” the reverse meditations, and the five nocturnal meditations. We will explore the many obstacles to meditation, including spiritual bypassing, escapism, spiritual materialism, and McMindfulness. Andrew Holecek is the author of many books and offers seminars internationally on meditation, lucid dreaming, and dream yoga.
