Join us the 1st Sunday of every month for “Shamatha Meditation”, a simple but profound meditation. Shamatha, or “Mindfulness Meditation”, is how we make our mind more calm and more stable. From this point of view, shamatha is not purely a Buddhist practice; it’s a practice that anyone can learn and do.

Meditation is a natural state of mind – at rest, open, alert. The practice of meditation has been taught for hundreds of years for realizing and embracing the beauty and magic of every day life.

Buddhism emphasizes the potential for awareness, insight, clarity, and illumination in every day situations. Through consistent meditation practice, gentleness, and a sense of humor the practitioner learns how to let go of conflicting emotions and wake up on the spot. The Buddhist approach of self-discovery is rooted in the simple but revolutionary premise that every human being has the ability to cultivate the mind’s inherent calm, clarity, and strength in order to be more awake and to develop the compassion, loving kindness, and wisdom necessary to care for oneself and the world genuinely.

Meditation is offering your genuine presence to yourself in every moment. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
