“When we develop mindfulness we train ourselves to pay attention to our present experiences, we then can connect deeply and directly to what is actually happening. We can learn to be fully present with what is… and in doing so, experience a happiness and peace that is not dependent on outer circumstances. Insight Meditation has its foundation in Buddhist teachings but is non-sectarian and anyone, no matter what your chosen faith, can benefit. As neuroscience learns more about the function of the brain it becomes clear that small changes we make in our thinking can lead to big changes in our brain and our experience of life.”

    I will share a quote from Joseph Goldstein...
    "We want to investigate and see the truth of our experience, so we can begin to make choices in our lives with discriminating wisdom rather than simply act out our old habit patterns of conditioning. Thoreau wrote about his time at Walden Pond:" I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately and face only the essential facts of life, and see if I could learn what it had to teach, and not when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Meditative practice is our own Walden Pond. We come to our practice because we wish to live deliberately, to face the essential facts of life, and see if we can learn what it has teach us."
    If any of this rings true for you, this workshop can help you develop the tools you will need for your exploration.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
