Have you ever meditated before? If yes, How long have you been meditating for?

I have meditated on and off for years. At seminary in NYC I sat with a group on Sundays for an hour in the Chapel. I am not disciplined enough but I should be sitting daily.

Are you familiar with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh?

Have read No Death, No Fear and Being Peace. Have studied Eastern religions and philosophies.

Do you have a formal Mindfulness Meditation Practice? If yes, What can you tell us about your Practice?

When I sit, I count breaths to 10, or use some of Thich Nhat Hanh's suggestions. Some Metta-meditation.

Would you like to join us Sunday nights for Mindfulness Meditation and Dharma Sharing?

yes

Introduction

I have been flirting with mediation and Buddhism since my college days. I attended my first retreat at the Rochester Sangha founded by Philip Kaplow. I take my practice and the teachings more seriously now as a spiritual and moral guide to living.

What Maddi G. is saying about this Meetup Group

I like this group alot and plan to continue attending.
