Tuesday public meditation (Hybrid)

July 16th

Date details +
    Room: Lakewood Center

    All are welcome.

    Open Meditation sessions currently last 1 hour.  During this time, there is a timekeeper who rings a gong to begin the session.  We begin and end each meditation session with 5-10 minutes of chanting.  You are welcome but not obligated to participate in chants. Feel free to sit silently during the chanting, After opening chants, we sit silently for 15 to 20 minutes.  This is followed by silent walking meditation for 10 minutes, followed by another sitting session for 15 to 20 minutes, then closing chants.

    Two options for attending are available:

    Attend In-Person:

    Meditation cushions are provided although you may bring your own if you have a favorite.  Chairs are available for those whose physical needs require one.

    Instruction for new meditators is provided by an authorized instructor before you join the main group. Please arrive 10 minutes early if you want instruction.

    Your first time?  Wear loose, comfortable clothing and please arrive on time.  Also, check out our Frequently Asked Questions.

    Parking: Parking is entirely street parking along Madison, McKinley and surrounding side streets


    Attend Online:

    Meetings are being held via Zoom.  Chant texts are screen-shared.

    You need a computer with a browser or a smartphone with the free Zoom app.  You may also dial in for voice-only access.

    Please help us hold a strong container by being mindful of the timing of your arrival as well as the decorum you bring to the online experience. Treat this virtual environment as sacred space.
