We are a peer-led group from Ridgewood, NJ which meets every Wednesday night, from 7 pm to 8:30 pm (now online due to COVID-19), to meditate together and discuss how to live mindfully and compassionately in today’s world. We are one of the local meditation groups or sanghas of New York Insight, an urban center for the practice of mindful awareness or Insight meditation.

Weekly mindfulness and insight meditation group meeting

What we do: We start with a silent meditation period for 25 to 30 minutes, followed by a sharing of our experiences. A peer leader then shares a reading or we watch a video related to mindfulness and Buddhism. We have breakout groups to discuss the reading or video, and then the whole group continues the discussion. We end with a brief metta or loving kindness meditation.
