Guided Meditation

Mindfulness - Four Ways to Practice

Monday, June 20 thru August 22

7:00 to 8:30 PM

In person and on Zoom.  Taught by Kim Weeber

(We have air conditioning!)

The Buddha assured us that we could awaken and free ourselves from suffering by practicing mindfulness in specific ways. The Satipatthana Sutta / The Four Foundation of Mindfulness contains those practice instructions.

We will work from the translation by Analayo, The Satipatthana Practice Guide.  After the introduction, each week will focus on a particular mediation.  We will explore mindfulness of the body, hedonic tones, mind, and dharmas. 

Drop in for any one class, or take the entire series.  See the calendar (Offerings) for which topic is being discussed on a particular day.  No class on July 4.  Suitable for beginners and experienced students.

Registration and Donation information:

Suggested donation for class series is $15 – 25 per class.  Please donate according to your means.  Everyone is welcome to attend.
