    This weekly Mindfulness Meditation Practice allows you to meditate with others every Thursday lunchtime, either at the Library or online via Zoom. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced, this drop-in class will help support you in establishing and strengthening your practice at this time.

    Each month we invite a guest teachers to facilitate the meditation practice. Come once, come every week – OR if you prefer, connect once, connect every week – for this informal gathering.

    Please register if you would like to attend.

    Guest teacher for March:

    Kynan Tan is a meditation teacher who takes a collaborative approach to helping students achieve their meditation goals. He came to meditation after struggles with stress, anxiety, and depression and found the practice to be transformative. He believes that meditation has enormous potential for creating positive change and opening up new ways of relating to our experience.

    Kynan draws upon a number of different modern and traditional techniques of contemplative and introspective practice. He is a longtime practitioner of the stages of samatha-vipassana (as presented in the book The Mind Illuminated), Rob Burbea’s insight meditation techniques, nondual awareness, and brahmavihara practices (metta, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity).

     

    All Sessions are by Donation (Dana) to the Buddhist Library.

    All donations to the Buddhist Library of $2 and over are tax deductible.

    Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The Library offers events and classes without requesting a fee and it’s up to each person to determine the amount of dana they’d like to offer. We understand that this is a difficult time financially for many, and people will give what they can. An appropriate dana can’t be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and to the individual’s own situation, as well as awareness of the cost of organising events and supporting teachers to spread the Dhamma.
