This meditation was originally scheduled for last week, but had to be postposed until this Tuesday.
Doug will lead us on a mindfulness meditation.
Mindfulness is often defined as "present-centered, non-judgemental awareness." In practice, however, there is a strong emphasis on the present-centered aspect. In this meditation, we will explore what it means to be "non-judgemental".
The basis for this exploration will be the ancient "recipe" for mindfulness: "The meditator focuses on an object in and of itself,ardent, alert, and mindful, putting aside greed and distress with respect to the world. This is one's right mindfulness"
In addition to meditation, we'll have a discussion. We'll also go out for a bite to eat afterwards.
