Details

This group meets almost every Sunday (be sure to check our calendar) to present, discuss and practice the foundations of Buddhist practice. Our methods are based on the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism in accordance with our teachers’ guidance. (For more information check our website using the link below.)

A foundation for meditation practice is laid with the techniques of "calm abiding" (shamatha) meditation. This practice is augmented with the Four Immeasurables, "sending and receiving" (tonglen), and other techniques. We present, discuss and engage with the practices. We build on these basics with the methods of "insight" (vipashyana) meditation.

No experience is needed; all are welcome; no prerequisites. There will be time for question and answers. Participants are encouraged to supplement the series with their own study and practice. Experienced practitioners are encourage to also participate in our 11:30 AM ritual practice sessions on Sundays after the Meditation Group
