Mindfulness in Honolulu
Weekly Group Sessions
We practice Buddhist insight meditation- AKA mindfulness meditation: simple, effective, down to earth. Come join us for weekly guided sessions and talks. Always free.
We began meeting weekly for meditation and discussion in back in 1998 and, like many other groups, we took a break during the pandemic… and re-started in January, 2023.
We meet Thursdays, 6:00 to 7:30 PM at our home in Pālolo Valley.
We start our meetings with a short period of standing and/or gigong meditation, followed by a 30 minute guided sitting session. We then enjoy a short break, followed by a talk with time for questions or discussion.
This would be an ideal introduction to meditation
for people who you may wish to introduce to this simple-yet-profound contemplative practice.
Due to parking and space limitations, we are now requiring folks to follow new guidelines, listed below.
New guidelines regarding group participation
Address and Parking
It would be ideal if you could park on 10th Avenue and walk eight to ten minutes to our home. If walking is a problem please contact us through the contact form on this site so we can arrange special parking for you.
Our address is 2439 Holomua Place, #A, in upper Palolo Valley, adjacent to the Palolo Chinese Home.
On the map below, it would be great if you could park somewhere on 10th Avenue then walk down Makanui and follow the blue line to our place at the end of Holomua Place, which is a cul-de-sac.
BUT –> if there are few spots on 10th Avenue, don’t let the parking thing stop you from coming–> see if there are spots on our street, Holomua Place, there are usually four spaces.
Please do not park on Makanui Place- thanks so much!
Cushions and chairs
- If you practice meditation at home using a cushion, please bring one with you as we have a limited supply of cushions.
- Note: there will be some chairs available, plus two long benches and a couch.
Consideration for our landlord/ neighbor
- As you enter and leave our place, please be mindful that the owner lives very close by in the next house, so kindly keep conversations in a low tone.
