Drop-in Mindful Meditation

Drop-in mindfulness meditation class, by donation. 7-8pm every Tuesday. These classes are designed to be a reliable, accessible way to develop community of people interested in nurturing the inner life, and support for your practice.  If you've never meditated before this is a way to dip your toe in, and if you are more experienced, to meet others and gain energy and support to deepen your practice.  Everyone welcome.

Sarah will give a short talk on a concept or theme within Buddhist Philosophy and then guide a meditation.  Influences are Therevadan Vipassana as well as mindfulness application within Western Psychology.  Afterwards there will be time for a question & answer period to clarify or deepen understanding.  Usually the format is a 20 min. talk, followed by 30 mins. of guided meditation and 10 mins. of Q&A.

A combination of sitting meditation, walking meditation, and other manners of modifications such as standing or laying down are encouraged if sitting doesn't work for someone.
