Ajahn began with base instructions on how and why we meditate, keeping it nice and simple for the beginners and the more experienced alike.  A  refresher never hurts.  Ajahn then led the full house through a 30 minute guided meditation.

“Nothing to do. Cars going by, clock ticking, body breathing. Nothing to do.  We don’t need to do anything, just be a friendly observer.”  Ajahn Cittapalo

After the meditation Ajahn offered this advice to beginners:- Don’t make it a chore or a burden, make it a pleasant, easy for you, experience.  If you aren’t enjoying it, shorten the time.  Gradually extend your meditation time, don’t make it a job.
