Insight Meditation Cleveland (IMC) is offering an introduction to meditation and Buddhist philosophy for anyone who is new to Buddhist thought or who wants to refresh their understanding and practice. The program consists of eight 90-minutes sessions offered via Zoom. Each session will include guided meditations and a presentation on a fundamental teaching. The eight sessions are intended to build upon each other, but each can stand alone so that one can join any session without feeling lost. The first class will be led by IMC's guiding teacher, John Cunningham. The remaining sessions will be offered by Emily Kortiz and Gordon Gowans, members of the IMC Dharma Council.
