Based on the traditional Buddhist method of Metta, this meditation is 45 minutes of guided repetition of the Loving Kindness phrases:May I be safe, happy, healthy, and live with ease.
Metta, or Loving Kindness, creates a powerful space and possibility of happiness for ourselves and the world.
Meditation for Regular People
This class is one hour long. We spend some time introducing ourselves, then we meditate together for 5 minutes as a warm up. Melissa will lead some discussion around mindfulness and teach a meditation technique you can use outside of class. Then she will guide you through a 25 minute meditation. No skills required. If you can breathe, you can meditate.
Extended Community Meditation
Community meditation for experienced meditators.
We’ll begin with a short reading, ring the bell, and then spend 40 minutes on the cushion.
Knitting is meditation and meditation is knitting. Learn from teacher Deb Cipolla, an expert in both!
Take an hour to tune into your inner voice and do a little soul excavation on paper.
We’ll write and share one deep question, one “life compass” quote, and one fun writing prompt.
Grab a pen & paper and come stretch yourself a little and see what bubbles up.
