Insight Meditation Sitting Group
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: The Heavenly Abodes
How do we cultivate clear seeing, a balanced mind, and an open heart in challenging times? To meet life the Buddha offered the practices of the Brahma Viharas, often translated as The Heavenly Abodes, which includes Metta - loving friendliness, Karuna - compassion, Mudita - sympathetic joy, and Upekkha - equanimity.
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 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.
