Mindfulness with Heart provides instruction and support for the cultivation loving presence or non judgmental present moment awareness. This group is for anyone interested in learning how to mindfully meditate, or deepen practice, in a supportive and comfortable setting. It is open to beginning and advanced students alike. The evening includes guided and silent sitting in the practice that leads to insight or Vipassana mind. The focus of Doug's teaching is on the cultivation of compassion, loving-kindness and wisdom through the practice of being fully present for the ever changing joys and sorrows of life. In addition to traditional mindfulness meditation, this evening includes a talk on topics related to mindfulness meditation. There is also an opportunity for informal discussion and for questions related to practice. The discussion is in a small group setting. The group meets in the living room behind the main meditation hall. Enter through the kitchen door on the left side of the building.
