Sitting Meditation with John Terlazzo

Sitting Meditation with John Terlazzo
Thursdays, 1/22 thru 2/12/15 and
Thursdays, 3/5 thru 3/26/15
at Radiance 1:30 – 3pm

People in the West often talk about the health benefits of Sitting Meditation – balanced blood pressure, an improved immune system, better digestion, a calmer demeanor, more restful sleep & so on. This is all good – but these are not the reasons why we “Sit”. Rather they are coincidental side effects of an ancient practice that is far deeper than mere physical & mental health improvements.
Sitting Meditation brings us into a daily, still intimacy with our True Nature - with God, Truth, the Essence – not someone’s “idea” or “concept” of these, but with That which is beyond all structures, concepts & dogmas.
Classes will be held at Radiance, 9 W Grant St., across the cobblestones from Lancaster’s Central Market, in the heart of downtown Lancaster.  To register, stop in or phone Radiance at 717-290-1517.
Cost is on a sliding scale of $55-40 for each four week series, or $15-12 per class.
All serious, committed persons – regardless of philosophy, religion, creed or absence thereof – are welcome.  Bring a meditation cushion if you have one.  Chairs are available for those who require them.
John Terlazzo is a poet / painter/ singer-songwriter and storyteller who has been practicing Sitting Meditation since his initiation in 1972.  John says, “I have been practicing daily Sitting Meditation for 42 years now, a deep work with the breath. I don't pretend to be anyone’s guru or great teacher, but - after consistently doing this work for this long, I can be helpful in assisting those who sincerely wish to pursue the practice.”
