Cultivating Mindfulness of Mind and Body

This class offers an opportunity for beginners and more experienced students to deepen meditation and mindfulness practice through instruction in sitting, walking meditation in the beautiful memory garden outside our room, gentle mindful movement, short talks and discussion. Insight/mindfulness meditation emphasizes a calm centeredness of mind and body.

Fall classes begin on September 9. This class does not meet on Memorial Day, in July and August, or between December 21-January 4.

Class begins with 10 minutes of simple mindful movement, qi gong or walking meditation, and moves on to 30 minutes guided and silent meditation, a short dharma talk, and opportunity for discussion.

Carole and Alicia will be joined by several visiting teachers. Our focus is on offering practical wisdom for our daily lives within traditional Buddhist teachings.

We aspire to create a safe, supportive community and welcome everyone with an interest in meditation regardless of identity, orientation or background. 

No registration is necessary. This is a drop-in class and newcomers as well as long-time practitioners are welcome. Chairs, cushions and benches are available or you can bring your own gear. 

In the Buddhist tradition, the teachings are considered so precious as to be priceless. Thus they are given freely, with the opportunity to offer voluntary donations, or dana to support the teacher and class expenses. A donation (dana) of $10-15 is suggested for IMCW classes, but all are welcome, regardless of their ability to pay.

*** CLASS MEETS IN THE LIBRARY OF CEDAR LANE MAIN BUILDING. GO INTO FRONT DOOR AND TAKE IMMEDIATE RIGHT INSIDE THE FIRST DOOR.  

This venue is accessible for those with mobility impairments.
