Class Series: Topics in Insight Meditation (Drop-in)
- 8:30 PM at Lamont Dharma House, (1719 Lamont St., NW, Washington, DC, 20010) (Map It)
Topic: Your Mind--Friend or Foe?
Teacher: Luisa Montero-Diaz
The Buddha said that the source of both our suffering and our happiness is the mind. How can we rewire our thinking, through the practice of mindfulness, to calm ourselves and see more clearly in this frenetic and ‘cloudy’ world? The tool of mindfulness helps us see that the mind can be either the best of friends or the greatest enemy.
Join us for an exploration of how mindfulness practice on the cushion translates to living a saner, more connected, kinder life off the cushion.
The session will begin with a period of silent meditation, then the dharma talk and afterwards brief time for Q & A. The session is from 7-8:30 p.m. If you arrive late please wait to enter until the meditation has ended. Then you can enter in the back door.
This class is offered freely. No registration is required. There will be an opportunity to offer dana (a donation) at the class to support the teacher and venue.
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.
No registration is necessary.
Newcomers to meditation and long time practitioners are welcome to attend IMCW classes. Chairs are always provided or you may bring your sitting gear.
