Introductory Meditation Class Starts October 1
Tim Geil will be leading this six-week class series on Monday evenings from Monday evenings from October 1 through November 5 with a Day of Mindfulness on Saturday, November 3. Insight meditation also known as mindfulness or vipassana meditation comes from the Buddhist tradition. It aims to free the mind from the distortions of self-centeredness, negativity, and confusion. Seeing life as a constantly changing process, one begins to accept pleasure and pain, fear and joy, and all aspects of life with increasing balance and equanimity. This balanced awareness, grounded in the present moment, leads to stillness and a growing understanding of the nature of life. Out of this seeing emerges wisdom and compassion.
