Our mindfulness meditation is lead by Paulette Miller. The sessions offer a westernized, secular version of Vipassana, also known as insight, open-hearted, and analytic meditation. The format of the hour practice is in the style preferred by Jon Kabat Zinn (creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine – University of Massachusetts Medical School) and other recognized and popular teachers (Jack Kornfield, Sharon Salzberg, Tara Brach, Joseph Goldstein, et al). Sessions often include guided breathing meditation, movement meditation, and loving-kindness meditation. From time-to-time, we use music meditation and almost always include a poem. The meditation exercises are guided. It’s a quiet hour. No experience needed. Participants sit in chairs or on a yoga mat/cushion.
