The evening will consist of guided meditation practice, a talk on a topic related to mindfulness, and plenty of time for questions and discussion.
No previous experience with mindfulness or meditation necessary.
$5-$10 suggested donation.
About the teacher:
Paul Sireci began practicing Buddhism and meditation in earnest in 1996. Having been a monastic for several years in the early 2000s, he has continued his love affair with the path as a lay practitioner and psychotherapist. Paul is inspired by a vision in which the radical truths found in the teachings will create a 21st century Buddhism that is not afraid of engaging issues of power, privilege, and difference. He is passionate about an emerging Dharma centered on healing and transforming communities as much as it is already helping people find their native sanity. In his free time, Paul can usually be found wandering around Chinatown.
