with Laine Gifford, every Thursday from 12-1 pm in the Annex
We will meet weekly to meditate together, and to explore the applications, and implications, or mindfulness meditation in every day life. These meetings are open to people with any level of meditation experience.
The group provides a setting to learn about and to practice meditation, and for those who are interested, to receive support for a regular meditation practice at home.Together we will explore mindfulness practices and their effects on our own experiences of everyday life. These meetings are open to people with little or no experience in meditation as well as experienced practitioners - anyone who is simply curious and would like to come check it out is most welcome.
Each meeting will include:
- a meditation period of 30 minutes, with simple instruction and guidance
-10-15 minutes of walking meditation
-time for questions and discussion of participants' experiences of meditation
We will also take the time to discuss the benefits of meditation, which include the cultivation of insight and compassion, as well as increased physical, emotional and mental well-being.
The sessions are led by Laine Gifford. Laine has been meditating for almost 30 years, in the Zen and Vipassana traditions. Her particular interest is in contemporary understanding and application of Buddhist psychology, and bringing the transformative power of mindfulness practice into our everyday lives. She has led meditation groups in a variety of settings.
