Have you ever thought it might be great to have a little island of calm that you could escape to? Well, there are two opportunities each week for you to drop in and practice Insight Meditation with the Insight Meditation Group.
This practice serves a community of those learning and developing the skillful use of meditation that leads to awareness in all aspects of individual, family, work, and community life. The group is appropriate for beginning meditators, as well as experienced practitioners. All you need to participate is a comfortable place to sit, i.e. a chair or cushion. Attendance is on a drop-in basis, so you are welcome to join any session as your schedule permits.
Saturday, 2:00pm Session – Includes a reading, basic instructions and a silent 35-minute group “sit”. Those who would like more detailed instructions can join at 1:45pm. Starting May 28, every 4th Saturday session will offer the option to meet on Zoom or in-person at the UUCS Social Hall for a time of sitting and walking meditation. These sessions will start with a 25-minute guided sitting meditation with instructions, suitable for beginners and experienced meditators. Then there will be a10-minute walking meditation, followed by a final silent 30-minute sitting meditation. Participants planning to attend a 4th Saturday session are requested to notify Insight Meditation Leader, Yvonne Bentley (ybentley@aol.com).
Wednesday, 4:00pm Session – Join us for a time of gladdening the mind and heart!
In these weekly guided meditations we’ll explore gentle and gradual cultivation and expansion of various practices, including lovingkindness, compassion, joy, equanimity, forgiveness, gratitude, acceptance and more. Our time together includes a brief introduction to the week’s topic followed by a guided meditation and a 5-minuted silent sitting.
