South Portland, ME
Hello Mindful Mainers,
I wanted to share two things with our Mindfulness Meetup members. First, beginning September 14 we are offering a six week mindfulness course as led by Gil Fronsdal, primary teacher for the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood Hills, CA. He recorded the six audio lessons in 2008, and offers them through the Zencast podcast at zencast.org. I will be playing a lesson each week, which run a little over an hour for each session, followed by discussion. This will be for new people as well as more experienced practitioners. We'll be offering this course on our usual meeting time Monday night at the First Parish Church. To see more information, and to RSVP, go to this meetup page: Mindfulness Course - Week 1
Speaking of zencast, here is a link to a talk by Jack Kornfield, noted international meditation and mindfulness teacher. There are many more such talks available at the website, and also at audiodharma.org. If you have some time, these teachings are available for free and come from some of the best mindfulness and meditation teachers in the world. Well worth the time to listen.

Hope you are getting out and enjoying the splendid summer weather we are having.
