The method offered is from a Tibetan Buddhist lineage, an open-eyed meditation called Shamatha, or “calm abiding.” It is not necessary to practice Shamatha in order to participate in this group; all forms of silent meditation are welcome.
Meditation cushions are available. Straight-backed chairs are also available. Feel free to bring your own meditation cushion or bench if you have one. Wear comfortable clothes. Bring a sweater for cooler weather. If you bring a drink, please use a closed container.
After meditation, we always gather for refreshments, hot tea, and fellowship. Please feel free to bring something to share if you wish.
