Mipham Shedra Tibetan Buddhist Meditation
Jul 22 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

DESCRIPTION

Join us for public meditation instruction & practice with Tibetan teacher Lhoppon Rinpoche. This is a rare opportunity to learn from Rinpoche, who studied in the monastery from 5 years of age with accomplished masters who escaped from Tibet during the cultural revolution. These masters carried the teachings at the risk of their lives. Rinpoche has dedicated his life to spreading the lineage of Truth, Love & Compassion.

Lhoppon Rinpoche says this about Meditation: “Meditation is the most simple thing to do. It is all about discovering your beautiful nature from deep silence which is a healthy, long-lasting antidote for depression, anxiety, stress and fear.”

The Power of Presence
Jul 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

DESCRIPTION

The Power of Presence: Integrating presence into work, relationship and life

In this group, you will learn how to find refuge in “just this moment,” how to connect deeply with yourself and others, and to discover the joy of NEVER abandoning yourself. Our goal is to learn how to be deeply present and engaged with our lives, while also living from a spiritual and emotional center which is as solid as a mountain. The benefits of this work include new levels of peace, wisdom and compassion (especially for self).

This is an ongoing group, with the intention to create a sense of community, and to provide learning/inspiration to deepen your practice of Presence. We meet every other week. The commitment is for 6 months, though the hope is to have an ongoing group after that.

Zen Meditation
Jul 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

DESCRIPTION

For people interested in finding a lay (non-monastic) community, we offer the opportunity to practice with experienced meditation practitioners.

Our primary practice is zazen, or Zen meditation. Zazen is the heart of Zen practice and is at the same time the full expression of our inherent enlightenment as well as the means of uncovering it.

Zazen can take place in stillness (sitting meditation) and in activities such as walking meditation and work practice. Therefore, we encourage a quiet, meditative atmosphere and use many traditional Zen forms to help us in that regard.

FORMAT

Three 25-minute sitting rounds with walking meditation in between. Private instruction for Zen Center members.

LEVEL

Formal Zen experience required. See “Notes” below.

PAYMENT

$5 – $10 suggested donation.

Cash or checks accepted at the door.

We offer two ways for you to become familiar with us. Please visit our website and click the “Getting Started” tab.

You’ve been hearing about mindfulness and its benefits everywhere, from psychologists to doctors to athletes. But what exactly is mindfulness?

New material is introduced every week, yet presented as a stand-alone class. You will get the most out of this series by attending regularly, but you’ll never feel lost if you can only attend when your schedule allows.

Integrative Yoga for Healing & Alignment
Jul 26 @ 8:30 am – 9:45 am

DESCRIPTION

Yoga is an ancient Indian healing tradition that utilizes a gently flowing integration of postures and breath, with an emphasis on accessing a calm and empowered body, mind, and heart.

This practice consists of stretching and strengthening joints, muscles, and tissues, as well as an exploration of breathing, relaxation, and mindfulness techniques.

Integrated Yoga for Healing and Alignment takes a classical approach–we move at a gentle, mindful pace with emphasis on breath with the intention of facilitating awareness, healing, and alignment.

Classes are appropriate for all levels of experience and can be modified for those with physical considerations.

Please bring a mat, as well as any other props that are beneficial for your practice. Some mats and props are also available for use at the center.

Gratitude Meditation
Jul 26 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

DESCRIPTION

Gratitude is much more than a word or gesture of thanks. It is a powerful mindset that can transform our relationships with everything and everyone around us.

Gratitude as a meditation technique is the element that unites the practices of non-harm with generosity. When we refrain from harm we cultivate kindness; when we practice generosity we give and receive freely. Gratitude is not possible without kindness (toward ourselves and others) nor without generosity (understanding the role of receiving).

These classes combine mantra and visualization techniques to help develop a baseline comfort with feeling and expressing gratitude. In time, they show us how to live with greater compassion, appreciation and joy.

Thursday Insight Meditation Sitting (TIMS)
Jul 26 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm

DESCRIPTION

TIMS is a group of women and men who gather together each week to practice mindfulness meditation (Vipassana) as a community. While we focus on the Theravadan tradition of Buddhism, all practitioners are welcomed regardless of spiritual and religious affiliations.

The format is fairly simple: a meditation sitting followed by a Dharma talk. The sitting period is 30 minutes long and Dharma talks can range from 30-45 minutes.

We have no local teacher and value the simplicity this approach offers. Membership is the highest rank any of us achieve at TIMS.

Recorded Dharma talks are given by Gil Fronsdal or Andrea Fella of the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, California.

FORMAT

Silent Meditation, Recorded Teaching, Discussion

LEVEL

Prior meditation experience helpful but not required.

Dana (the Buddhist word for giving) is accepted and collected at each meeting from those members who are inspired to contribute. All collected dana is sent quarterly to Gil Fronsdal and Andrea Fella of the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, California
