  • Beginners' Meditation Practice
    Let’s get together and practice! Begin a meditation practice by doing it in silence and in the presence of others. We will follow a simple plan: 20 minutes of silent sitting meditation, …10 minute break… followed by another 20 minutes of silent sitting. Afterward, we will share tea. You are welcome to practice any form of meditation you prefer. You can sit on a chair, the floor, your own cushion (please bring). The group is not affiliated with any one style of practice or teacher. We welcome people from all backgrounds and spiritual practices. To begin on your own, check out these two apps: Headspace and 10% Happier.
