Please join us in the spirit of group meditation practice. We have no credentials, we are meditation practitioners.

We practice a basic Vipassana; /sitting and silent (non-guided) meditation for 25-30 minutes, followed by 5 to 8 minutes of walking meditation (deliberate walking around in a circle feeling connection to the earth) followed by a Dharma book reading and discussion for 20 to 30 minutes. Our current discussion book is Joseph Goldstein's "One Dharma" – an insightful exploration of the commonalities within Buddhist traditions. Recent books read by the group have included works by Thich Nhat Hanh, Tulku Thondup and Pema Chödrön.

Whether you are new to meditation or a seasoned practitioner this session offers each of us the ability to practice meditation with others and share our experiences.

For newcomers to meditation, we will offer a brief instruction on sitting meditation and getting comfortable. Please arrive a few minutes early so we can get to know you.
