Our meditation events include:

  • silent meditation
  • time to reflect and journal after each meditation
  • group reflections: a process in which students voluntarily describe their meditation experiences and are interviewed by the teacher
  • dharma talks
  • group discussions

In order to honor each person’s process in meditation, our meditation periods are silent rather than guided. Basic meditation instructions are given for newcomers. People who already have a meditation practice are invited to meditate in the way that they are accustomed to or try this receptive and unstructured approach. We typically meditate for 30–40 minutes; each student is free to end a meditation earlier. Afterwards, there is time for silent reflection and journaling.

We offer a variety of events that are designed to provide opportunities to accommodate different schedules, interests, and levels of involvement. Most events are open to both beginners and ongoing students.
