Please join us in the spirit of group meditation practice. We are meditation practitioners from many backgrounds. Everyone is welcome.

We practice a basic silent (non-guided) meditation for 30 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of walking meditation (deliberate walking, feeling connection to our bodies and the earth) followed by a Dharma book reading and discussion for 20 to 30 minutes. Our current discussion book is Pema Chödrön's "The Places That Scare You". Recent books read by the group have included works by Thich Nhat Hanh, Tulku Thondup and Pema Chödrön, Joseph Goldstein and Charlotte Joko Beck.

Whether you are new to meditation or a seasoned practitioner this session offers each of us the ability to practice meditation with others and share our experiences.

For newcomers to meditation, we can offer a brief instruction on sitting meditation and getting comfortable. Please arrive a few minutes early so we can get to know you.
