Mindfulness Meditation Centers offer crystal-clear meditation instruction and guidance at all levels, from beginners with no experience to those interested in advanced retreats and practices. Each center provides high-quality meditation instruction supplemented by both weekend and long-term retreats.
All of the teachers at the center are accomplished Western practitioners with substantial experience in deep meditation retreat. Our teachers provide both group instruction opportunities as well as individual guidance, and focus on the core practices of Buddhism: mindfulness, awakening and methods leading directly to realization.
The principal meditation focus is mindfulness of breathing, of feeling tones and of mind (the Four Foundations of Mindfulness). All meditations are instilled with loving kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity practices. As you focus on the heart of the Buddha's teaching, you may find that your practice deepens and that you have a greater understanding of the inner journey.
Weekly classes are on-going and each has a purposeful & intentional focus with a changing emphasis of exploratory topic. Classes usually include a guided meditation. Every meditation session begins with development of calm abiding. The second part of the meditation session uses the calm mind as a base for vipasanna or insight and the development of wisdom.
People may enter the classes at any time, with any level of experience, or from any meditation background as the teachings are non-sectarian, non-hierarchical in nature - all are welcome.
Please feel free to contact us with any question you may have, or simply drop in for an evening class to get a firsthand experience. There is no obligation.
