Guided Meditation

Ten Percent Happier - Practices to Bring Ease in Challenging Times

Monday, Nov 28, Dec 5 and 12

7:00 to 8:30 PM in person and on Zoom

Bluebird

Many of us are feeling stressed or overwhelmed by the events in our world, and we are going into the holiday season where there may be additional family expectations and stresses.

Is your regular meditation practice bringing enough freedom and ease to your mind?  Are you interesting in learning additional practices which may be helpful in times of stress?

We will explore working with some meditation and neuroscience hacks to help us switch from stress to calm.  These include ways to use specific breath practices to calm the mind, opening to spacious awareness in an easy, concrete way, and learning to switch from unskillful to skillful states. (Like Harry Potter was able to bring up his Patronus – a stag, in the face of threat). We will also address prioritizing pleasant hedonic tones.

Everyone is welcome and can drop in for any class.

Taught by Kim Weeber, founding teacher

Special Insight Dialogue Evening - Dharma Talk and Practice

Spiritual Friendship (kalyana mitta): The Relational Practice of Insight Dialogue
Tuesday, Dec 8 at 7:00 PM on Zoom

Janet_Surrey

Join us for a meditation practice at 7:00 PM, followed by a dharma talk at 7:20
by Janet Surrey, PhD., visiting teacher from the Boston area.

There will be 20 minutes of Insight Dialogue practice, followed by a large group reflection.
The evening will end before 8:30.

The Buddha spoke of kalyana mitta as the “whole of the Holy Life”. What is the role of friendship and relationship on the Eightfold Path? How does Insight Dialogue create optimal conditions of such friendship in the dharma where the factors of awakening are cultivated and amplified toward liberative relational insight?

Suggested donation for evening is $8 – 20. 
60% of your donation goes to the teacher, and 40% to the center. 
Please donate according to your means. 
Everyone is welcome to attend.
