What we're about

We're back!

After a 2.5 year hiatus due to COVID and losing our space in downtown Durham, we now have a new space! It's located in the Lakewood neighborhood. We gather here on Wednesday evenings to practice sitting meditation, walking meditation, and discuss ways that we can apply mindfulness to our contemporary world.

****

Mindfulness and meditation are part of all major religious and philosophical traditions. They are also as secular as they are non-secular. These practices allow us to bring our focus inward, so we can connect into something bigger than ourselves, and touch the true nature of reality. On Wednesday evenings we practice in community, so we can support one another on our own authentic paths.

Please join us for a light and accessible practice. A revolving group of teachers (including Bart, Trey, Varun, Kara, Angel, Tatyana and Aubrey) will lead this practice, so each week will be a little different. Generally it will follow the same outline: a short introduction, about 10-15 minutes of sitting meditation, 10 minutes of walking meditation, a short Dharma talk, and Dharma sharing (where you will have the opportunity to check in, if you wish).

Each week we will touch on a different theme or subject, rooted in classical Buddhist, Hindu, Christian and interfaith teachings. This is not a series, so you can simply join when your schedule and life allows.

No experience is required. This practice is accessible to anyone, regardless of physical ability, socioeconomic status, skin color, gender, sexual orientation, body size or belief system. We will have blankets, cushions and chairs available, but you are more than welcome to bring whatever type of seat you wish to use.

This practice is by donation (suggested donation is $5-10). You can donate in advance through the Global Breath schedule, or when you arrive (cash, Venmo, CashApp, PayPal). Proceeds go toward the Global Breath Building Fund, to support growing and improving the practice space.
