Sunday Open House Meditation Gathering (In-person)

May 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Sunday Open House Meditation Gathering

Please join us on Sunday mornings for a community gathering involving meditation practice, discussion, and readings. We gather to meditate for two 20-minute sessions with a walk and/or stretch in between, then listen to an inspiring reading, and have a group discussion. This program is open to everyone. No registration is required. No experience is needed. Guidance on the technique of meditation is available to anyone interested or new to practice.

Our readings this spring will come from the anthology called A Beginner’s Guide to Meditation, from Shambhala Publications (2014).

“As countless meditators have learned firsthand, meditation practice can positively transform the way we see and experience our lives. This practical, accessible guide to the fundamentals of Buddhist meditation introduces you to the practice, explains how it is approached in the main schools of Buddhism, and offers advice and inspiration from Buddhism’s most renowned and effective meditation teachers, including Pema Chödrön, Thich Nhat Hanh, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Sharon Salzberg, Norman Fischer, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, Judy Lief, and others.
