About This Group
The art of meditation is simple but not always easy. It thrives on practice and a kind and spacious heart. If you do this simple practice of sitting with awareness every day, you will gradually grow in centeredness and understanding.
For those who wish to participate in a gentler schedule. It includes sitting and walking meditation, lecture, discussion, and an opportunity for individual instruction
What You Can Expect
Together we will practice sitting and walking meditation with a focus on calming the mind. A talk and discussion will be given after the meditation. These drop-in sessions are suitable for beginners and all levels of experience.
