Mindfulness Meditation

The practice of Meditation has been handed down for thousands of years by the great sages and teachers of the East. Meditation calms and stabilizes the mind, strengthens the body and creates a sense of peace and stillness.

Many research studies have shown that learning to meditate has far-reaching health benefits.  For example, meditation helps us cope with stress, which is the cause of many illnesses.

Tisa McGraw has been training, studying and practicing Meditation since 2000.  This  training includes certification from Shambhala International to teach meditation & basic Buddhist studies. She attended seminary in 2007 and is a senior student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, leader of the Shambhala Buddhist lineage.

Topics include:

  • Mindfulness Meditation – also known as Shamatha.
  • Insight Meditation – also known as Vipassana.

You are welcome to bring cushions, zafus or seiza benches, if you have them. There is no need to sit in lotus position, you may also sit in a chair.

Please join us for this class and learn the valuable skills of Meditation.

Iron-Man Meditation

A two-hour sit for the brave, the bold, and the spiritually curious. Don’t let the tongue-in-cheek title fool you, we are ready to get serious with our meditation! Practicing meditation for longer periods allows the deeper revealing of continuous ego rebellion and the potential to reach new levels. Practicing in community melds hearts and facilitates the ability to stay present to the practice.

When do we get enough time for anything more than 5-30 minutes of meditation? When do we truly get the chance to go… deep, deep, deep?

Are you bold enough to try?

Inspired by a recent novel describing a gentleman being introduced to meditation via a two-hour practice with a holy man, we’ve decided to try, and we’d like to invite you to join us! We don’t have the holy man, but we do have a great community and an adventurous spirit! Please know that you do not have to sit for all 2 hours (people will be encouraged to get up and walk, wiggle, and stay comfortable—2 hours is a long time for a Western body, after all), so do not allow that concern to deter your ability to shout, “Yes!”

Afterwards, we will have a guided discussion of experiences and insights.  Looking forward to seeing you on the cushion!

Schedule:

TBD.  Please contact Renee for an upcoming schedule.
