Talk Title: A Conspiracy of Consciousness: The Practice of Breathing Together

In one of its most universal forms, meditation is the practice of being with the breath. This may seem like "not enough" in these times of action. In fact, in order to navigate our current planetary shift, it's essential that we conspire together. Spire means breath or spirit (aspire also originates from this); con means with — breathe with. To conspire with awareness is to be with each other's essence, to listen to each other's histories (especially those that have been dismissed or diminished), to face our own shadows, to confront injustice... to breathe together. Right now, we need a conspiracy of consciousness.

Insight meditation cultivates our natural wisdom and compassion. Meditation practice develops concentration, which allows us to calm and steady the mind. This class includes 1/2 hour of Vipassana meditation instruction and guided meditation followed by an hour-long dharma talk.
