"Know and watch your heart. It's pure but emotions come to color it. So let your mind be like a tightly woven net to catch emotions and feelings that come and investigate them before you react." - Ajahn Chah

Description: Experience the peace, stillness and power of mindfulness meditation in a community setting. This bi-monthly group offers an opportunity to sit with a group and be part of an on-going and supportive sangha. Some experience with meditation is recommended.

We will start with a short check-in and get acquainted. A 30-minute sitting meditation will follow with (some) guidance followed by a 15-minute walking meditation. The facilitator will give a short talk. We will end with a period of discussion either about the talk or about your mindfulness practice.

The group is donation-based. If this is within your means, we suggest a donation of $15.

Your donation is warmly appreciated and helps us to support our Program.
