As we find ourselves in the waves of TRUE impermanence, our Sitting Group (for the time being), will be hosted on Zoom. If you are interested in attending, please contact me and I will send you the link. To contact me please, click the "messages" tab at the top right of the MeetUp page and look for "Karen Redding" in your contact list. Thank you!
Given the times that we are living in, I will be facilitating our Sitting groups WEEKLY, rather than bi-monthly from 7 - 8:30 PM. We will take this month to month, as this is a time for loving connection.
Given our new format, we will begin with briefly getting acquainted with using Zoom. My intention is to provide a sacred and safe space to share our practice and to continue to explore the Brahma Vihara's, the essential qualities of the Wise Heart. Special attention will be paid, ESPECIALLY now (and so timely) to the quality of equanimity or cultivating balance.
Some dharma teaching will be implanted in the guided meditation (and followed by silence). Our Sit will be followed by an option for a short walking/ movement period. Yes...even on Zoom, this is possible! Following our meditation practice, there will be an opportunity for sharing as a group.
May we all be safe and protected from inner and outer harm. May we hold our fears with growing ease. May our practice benefit ALL BEINGS, EVERYWHERE...
*The group is donation based. We suggest a donation of $15, which is warmly appreciated and helps us to support our Program. For the time being, this donation can be made to my Venmo account at: @Karen-Redding-4. We will donate ALL dana during this time to InsightLA. This help will be vital in allowing InsightLA to continue offering the healing practices of mindfulness now and in years to come. Thank you for this practice of generosity!
