Meditation

Vipassana (“insight”) meditation is a Buddhist approach to awareness training that has been practiced in Asia for over 2,500 years. Vipassana cultivates mindfulness, which can be described as a compassionate awareness of what is occurring in the present moment. Through the development of mindfulness, we become more calm and steady, discover greater intimacy with ourselves and others, and explore our natural capacity for happiness and freedom.

In our weekly 90-minute sittings, we spend time both in practice and in discussion, with a focus on traditional seated meditation that uses the breath as an anchor to fully awaken the heart and spirit. Our dhamma discussions range from traditional Buddhist psychology to tips on how to be present in the face of fear, anxiety, and other unpleasant sensations. At the close of each sitting, we practice the art of metta (“lovingkindness”), a guided meditation that cultivates our natural ability to give and receive love.

This is a drop-in class, and no preregistration is necessary. Please wear loose and comfortable clothing to the workshop. We will provide meditation cushions to each student, and chairs are also available. In the Buddhist tradition, we will collect “dana” (donations) rather than charging a set fee. While a donation of $10 is suggested, you may give more or less, depending on what is comfortable for you!
