NEW Monday Night Meditation

Mondays, March 27 to April 24, 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Through the month of April, we will offer a drop-in meditation group on Monday evenings. There will be a 40 minute guided/silent meditation, an opportunity for walking or movement, and a time to share with the group about how our pratice is going. 

The focus for these evenings will be on building the skill of wise reflection/wise attention (yoniso manasikara) by sharing about our individual practices in a group setting, asking for feedback if desired. Staying silent and simply enjoying the meditation and the reflections of others is also perfectly acceptable.

Here are two wise reflections on wise reflection: http://www.abhayagiri.org/audio/wisely-reflecting and http://www.abhayagiri.org/audio/yoniso-manasikara 

RSVP is not required but is appreciated. You can contact Jessica via this link. All programs are offered by the generous giving of the community. Donations are gratefully accepted.
