Description:
This day of Insight Meditation is an invitation to reawaken in ourselves in the noble qualities of mindfulness and friendliness. Cultivating a relaxed, kind and curious attention to our moment to moment experience, we can recover our natural peace, clarity, wisdom and compassion. This capacity to pay attention in the present moment enables us to connect with ourselves more intimately and directly, understand the causes of both suffering and happiness and discover our natural freedom and ease. All levels of experience are invited.

Instructions for both sitting and walking meditation will be offered along with time for questions.


Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals and K-12 educators, as well as the general public. Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients. Continuing Education (CE) credit available.
