Meditation cultivates a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us and develops the tools we need to make the world a better place. The practice is logical, practical, transformative, and socially impactful. It’s really pretty easy. One quiet hour together – a small investment for a big return.

Chairs are provided, but feel free to bring your mat or cushion.

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.

Although the benefits of mindfulness on stress reduction are well-founded, the meditation practice also enhances resilience by strengthening the innate ability to cope and make wiser and kinder decisions – no matter the challenge or the opportunity of today or tomorrow.
Sitting in stillness and practicing together puts our problems on pause and lights the path to well-being – a path of purpose, pleasure, and peace.
