Practice and Discussion Group – Thursdays in January

This 4-week series is for anyone drawn to “dhamma” conversation as a way of deepening practice and feeling the support of the community through the pandemic. Each session there will be sitting practice, dharma teaching, and group discussion. The focus is on meditation practice and what’s alive in our hearts, using the foundation of Buddhist teachings. Drop-in on any single day or come to all of the Thursdays.
Meditation is a wonderful way to free the heart and let life move through you. Where there’s clinging, there’s suffering. Where there’s a lack of awareness, numbness, fear, denial, pain, there’s suffering. In meditation, we cultivate and walk the path to soften and free the heart
