This will be another two hour window on a Saturday afternoon during which you may enter quietly and meditate in silence as long as you like, leaving quietly when you need to leave. You will have the freedom to time your own sitting periods, rising when you need to in order to stand or take a break or engage in walking meditation. This will not be a social event as we normally think of them. There will be no hellos or goodbyes, no introductions or introductory discussions. This will be a time during which we allow each other the freedom and give each other the support to simply be in silence without saying a word and without there being any expectations of us other than our silent presence. For those who are present at the 4:00 PM end time, we will simply rise and bow and go about the rest of our day.
Bring what you need in the way of a cushion or mat and your own silent timepiece if you want to structure your time in a certain way. I have chairs for those who need them. Please refrain from strong scents in case anybody is sensitive to them. I'll have a little sheet available at the doorway that will orient you to other misc. details.
Thank you all very much! Mark
