Wednesday and Thursday nights beginning at 7:00 p.m. we hold regular meditation sessions. All are welcome to attend, beginners as well as those experienced in meditation. Please try to arrive a few minutes before 7:00 p.m. to avoid disturbing others by walking in late. However, if it is unavoidable, please do not hesitate to walk in quietly and make yourself comfortable.
Both insight (Vipassana) and concentration (Samatha) meditation are practiced, along with walking meditation and instruction. Meditation nights generally include a short “dharma” talk; that is a lesson or commentary on practical application of the Buddha’s teachings. If you are new to meditation, please let the leader of the session know so they can answer your questions and offer any instruction you may desire.
May all beings be peaceful, may all beings be happy, may all beings be free from harm
