We will not meet on the following days in 2020: 2/16, 5/24, 6/28, 7/5, 8/9, 8/16.
Whether you are new to meditation or already have a practice, we welcome you to join us. The evenings will have guided, walking, and silent meditation periods. Some instruction will be given. Together we practice the tools of mindfulness that bring us into the present moment, develop greater compassion, strengthen our concentration, and allow our body and mind to rest right here, right now. By stopping, focusing on our breathing, and observing our thoughts and feelings we gain clarity, spaciousness and the ability to stay present to whatever arises without reacting habitually. By practicing with the support of community, our commitment to living mindfully is strengthened. There is also time to share (optional) about our practice and deepen our skills of mindful listening and mindful speech. Please arrive early and avoid wearing fragrances for the comfort of the group. Chairs and cushions available.
