Awakening "Beginner's Mind"

.... Vipassana Meditation ~ Comprehending 'Reality'

....... 'Mindfulness-Awakening' Practice guided by Akasa Levi 

BIG QUESTIONS ? - Noon to 6 pm, M/F  Best phone-time inquiry to catch somebody 'live' -[masked] -

• Please save the really burning Questions about 'Meditation' or 'Spirituality', contemporary or ancient - for the class session itself ! Buddhism thrives on 'Questions' ! For other Logistic Details that may concern you, simply go to:

• How many Meditators Usually Attend ? - This is a very intimate - maybe 6, 8, 10 people max - a small weekly salon-sized study group. BTW: Our meditators come from other sources besides just MeetUp !
Yet a small group may be too close & personal for some people...
...or maybe not... 
We're more of a semi-serious study group, 
than a social-interaction group.
 Still, we do laugh a lot

• The BOOK we use for class study/discussion is A PATH WITH HEART by Jack Kornfield ( get it later ) - plus there's also many free readings and other Buddhist resources. This particular group encourages 'philosophical'.people who like to talk it up... beginning to learn the psychological language of the Dharma Teachings... our Group Dialogue does get quite lively ! Beginners most welcome !


Coming ? our preferred RSVP ~ Please PHONE AHEAD !
and for only for your First Time here ~ [masked] 
or email [masked]

( Try NOT to use MeetUp's RSVP set-up...

Use Your PHONE or EMAIL instead, please 

Leave us a brief message -- Then Just Come ! )
