Insight Meditation Sitting Group

Thursdays : 
6:30-8:00pm

led by Terry Magee & David Bornstein

931 N. 5th Ave, Tucson

 

The Insight Meditation Sitting Group meets every Thursday evening.  This on-going class offers continuity of practice  within the support of a community of like-minded people.  The intention is to bring these valuable teachings of the Buddha into practical applications in our daily lives.  

TOPIC:  As we cultivate mindfulness we discover that to be mindful is simple. It is the remembering to be mindful that is difficult. What are the forces that hinder us from staying in the present moment?

Over the next months the IMT Sitting Group will be exploring what is traditionally known in Buddhism as the Five Hindrances, consisting of grasping,  ill-will, sloth and torpor, restlessness and worry, and doubt.  We are currently exploring Grasping and Letting Go.

This drop-in class is open to those new to practice as well as those with an established mindfulness practice.

The evening includes a 35 minute sit, a dharma talk, and discussion or interactive exercises. 

DANA - The teachings of the Buddha are a priceless gift which are offered freely. No one is ever turned away for inability to pay. We invite you to consider dana, generosity, as part of our practice together, and to give what you can to support this dharma service.

 PARKING - Park in lot in back or along East side of 5th Ave, next to the park. Be mindful of Parking Permit requirements.
