What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
Meditation and Mindfulness have almost become buzz words in our current society. They are referred to and talked about as positive pursuits for "people in the know" similar to other Eastern-based practices like yoga and Tai Chi (both of which have meditative components).
Those of us with active meditation practices have a better understanding of what meditation is. But it is a useful exercise for experienced practitioners, as well as novices, to take a look at what exactly constitutes meditation, what can be expected, how to approach a practice session, and just as important, what NOT to expect or wish for.
So in this meeting I will delve into these aspects of the practice with some help from Bhante Gunaratana and his book, "Mindfulness in Plain English." I will present some of his, sometimes rather humorous but insightful, explanations about what meditation is and isn't. Then I'll lead a discussion of our thoughts, experiences and questions.
Join us and bring your thoughts and your own experiences to share, or just come to listen.
New meditators and those with regular practice are all welcome.
We'll do a short centering exercise at the beginning to settle in, then have some gentle discussion. At the end we will do a guided meditation. Our meetings go about 1 hour 15 minutes.
If you plan to attend please sign up here by Saturday, Oct. 23, and please change to "No" if you decide not to attend.
