Mindfulness Meditation classes are for anyone interested in sitting with a group in supported silence. Instructions and guided meditations focus on developing mindful awareness, wisdom and compassion. Anyone of any background is welcome, both experienced and new meditators alike. No sign-up is necessary.
Deepen your practice with a small group of dedicated practitioners. Over the course of four weekly sessions and an optional daylong silent hiking retreat, we'll focus on meditation - why we practice, what brings us back, how we practice and what we're learning.
This monthlong intensive is designed for those with established meditation practices. Each two-hour session will include 2 meditations and time to talk with each other. The optional daylong hiking retreat will be held mostly in silence and include some time for formal sitting meditation.
