Insight Meditation Series for Beginners with Paula Simon
Four week series beginning Thursday, May 17th 7:00 – 8:00pm
The series will provide meditation instruction and guidance suitable for beginners. Each class includes a sequence of sitting and walking meditation. Emphasis is placed on the practices of sitting and walking meditation and developing mindfulness in daily life. Discussion will conclude each session.
Insight Meditation is a simple technique that has been practiced in Asia for over 2,500 years. Beginning with the focusing of attention on the breath and developing awareness of all phenomena, the practice concentrates and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby to live more fully present in the moment. There is no requirement that any beliefs or rituals be adopted, although an open mind is requested. The practice develops clarity of seeing which allows grasping, judgment and fear to fall away. One discovers and cultivates qualities such as peace, vitality, compassion, equanimity, wisdom, joy and moral integrity. The ultimate aim of the practice is the ending of suffering in the discovery of an unconditioned and complete freedom. Everyone is welcome.
$60/series. Sliding Scale and Scholarship is available by request, contact Jen.
