Event description

Description

Join us weekly as we practice Insight Meditation, and read & discuss on related topics. Whether you just want to try meditation out for the first time or you're Enlightened, we'd love to have you. We gather to help each other overcome challenges in our meditation, share wisdom, talk Dhamma, relieve stress, and simply relax.

We believe meditation can be more than just sitting with your eyes closed. We practice with the goal of bringing the benefits of meditation deeper into our daily lives - to learn how to apply these techniques & philosophies in real life situations to foster deeper peace and true happiness no what is happening around us. Having a supportive Sangha can make all the difference - a group where everyone can feel welcomed & relaxed. You'll find no judgment here - just be yourself and feel free to share. Light instruction will be given prior to the guided session., but if this is your first time you can come early for additional instruction if you like.

No pre-reading necessary. I'll bring the reading materials, and we'll take turns reading aloud.

Chairs are provided, but feel free to bring your own cushions, pillows, blankets, or yoga mats.

- Tradition of Practice: We are open to meditators and yogis of all traditions, faiths, or secular practices. Meditation and discussions will primarily be framed through the lens of Insight Meditation, also known as Vipassana or Mindfulness, as taught by Mahasi Sayadaw and Ajahn Chah.

- Locations: We alternate locations to best serve those who'd like to attend.

Check out our group on Meetup.com for the latest most accurate location information or email us bucklandping@gmail.com.

- About Us: Lead & guided by Patrick & Ping, who simply want to share what they've found so helpful in life and gather together a supportive group of meditators. They each have 7 years of meditation experience in a variety of traditions, have gone on many intensive retreats and pilgrimages, learned at the feet of enlightened masters, and worked alongside monks promoting meditation around the world.
