A day of meditation with Shaila Catherine.

Although meditation is renowned for promoting tranquility and mental calmness, meditation is not passive. Investigative methods play a vital role in the skillful development of liberating insight.

Today’s program will explore the three characteristics (impermanence, unsatisfactoriness, and not-self) which lie at the heart of insight meditation practices. Our guide will be the precious instructions that the Buddha gave to his son Rahula. These instructions propose a series of simple questions that can clarify the nature of experience.

This day-long program will include sitting and walking meditation, instructions, teachings, and opportunities for individual meetings with the teacher. This practice day is appropriate for new and experienced meditators, drop-in participants, and dedicated Walking the Path members. Beginners are especially encouraged to attend the morning sessions when more meditation instruction is offered.

There will be a pot-luck community meal at 12:30; please bring a food dish to share.

Everyone is welcome. Chairs are provided. Bring a cushion if you prefer to sit on the floor.
