Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation, coming from the Buddha himself over twenty five hundred years ago, but necessary now more than ever. Our group of Insight Meditation sits on the second and fourth Sunday of each month, from 1-3 PM at the Mary and Joseph Retreat Center (in the Chapel), 5300 Crest Road, Rancho Palos Verdes 90275. Our "sits" consist of forty minutes of silent sitting meditation, twenty minutes of "mindfulness" walking meditation, a forty minute discussion, followed by a final twenty minutes of sitting meditation. The subject for discussion this week will be "Obstacles to Meditation". If you are interested in bringing some "equanimity" to your life come and join us at the Mary and Joseph Retreat Center with it's lovely gardens and views. Please bring your own sitting gear, chairs are available. This is a non-sectarian practice and all are welcome!
