Young Peasant Girls Resting in the Fields near Pontoise; mindfulness allows us to share our well-being intimately with others

We practice Buddhist insight 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 1998 but, like many other groups, we took a break during the pandemic.

We re-started our weekly meetings Thursday, January 5, 2023 at the usual time–> 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 beginners and for people who you may wish to introduce to this simple-yet-profound spiritual practice.

Many thanks for your understanding and support.

New guidelines regarding group participation

Attendance is limited to 20 participants each week, so before you register, sincerely consider others: if you register because you have a slight interest and then do not attend it means someone else may not have the chance to participate.

This activity requires you to walk about five minutes from where you park

  • If walking is a problem due to health issues, please email us after you receive your conformation email so we can arrange special parking for you.
  • Note: walking meditation is regarded in our Buddhist tradition as the BEST method of preparing the mind and body for sitting meditation!

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.

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.
