What we're about

Welcome to these Santa Barbara, Isla Vista, and Montecito guided mindfulness meditation sitting groups, which are now, during COVID, online. The purpose of these groups is to create a warm and supportive community, to learn a skillful practice of mindfulness, compassion, and natural awareness meditation, the introduction of new ideas, and the building of community.

This group lead by Radhule Weininger, MD Ph.D. and a variety of other teachers, offers carefully guided mindfulness meditation and loving-kindness meditations with the goal to cultivate emotional balance, inner happiness, and awake awareness. Teachers are Kim Le, MD, Mariela Bravo, Renee Golan, Hattie Bluestone, Fred Delafield, Michael Kearney, MD

Our meetings start usually with a 15 min. teaching, 30 min guided mindfulness meditation, and 15 min loving-kindness meditation, followed by discussion.

Everyone Welcome ~ Always Free

A member just asked me to elaborate on what we try to accomplish with these meetings:

• get a solid basis and mindfulness. loving-kindness and compassion

• understand foundations of Buddhist philosophy and Buddhist psychology and how it relates to Western psychology

• work to develop greater inner happiness, evenness, caring, and meaningful relationships

• develop the ability to have an inner refuge, touchstone, awakening and to learn to rest in awake awareness

• develop a community of people who want to learn, grow, and create a safe, warm and fun environment
