What might you expect at a Meditation Class?

A weekly meditation class can be a wonderful grounding to your practice and sustain your practice through the rest of the week. The structure of different classes varies, but there are a number of activities most classes offer. 

Classes begin with a 30-40 minute silent meditation period. If you have a meditation cushion (zafu) and knee cushion (zabuton), it is helpful to bring them to class. It is also fine to sit in a provided chair. Buddha in AlcoveSometimes meditation instruction is offered. If you are new to meditation, let Heather know, and she will be happy to provide meditation instruction.

Sitting meditation is followed by a short break, to stretch, use the restroom, or get tea and share community with others. The second half of class includes a dharma talk, which is teaching period often containing stories and examples from the insight meditation tradition, and how it applies to our lives today. Dharma talks are often followed by a short discussion period. Class ends with a short guided meditation. Please, come join us!
