Notes and Events:

As a general introduction to our meditation practice, the purpose is to develop focused clarity in our everyday lives by training the muscle of awareness and presentness in formal meditation sessions. Our style of practice is with eyes open, accepting of and sensitivity to our five senses, using the breath to focus us back intot the present moment, and a gentle relationship with thinking and an accepting relationship to thoughts. While this might seem to be a focus on personal development, our ultimate objective is to be better able to help and heal the societies we find ourselves in: home, friends, work and volunteering.

Meditation every second Sunday open to the public at the auditorium of Brentwood Co-op. From 9:30 to 1:30 (come and leave at any time). If this is your first time joining us for meditation, please use the contact information below for a brief orientation. The general schedule for these sessions is

9:15 to 9:30, set up
9:30 to 10, conversation

12:30 to 1:00, concluding conversations
