Please arrive a bit early to settle in. 

The Yoga Center provides chairs, zabutons (large, cushioned meditation mats) and blankets.  A few zafus (round, thick cushions) are available if one of the teachers brings them.  Because there are probably not enough zafus on hand for everyone, please bring your own zafu or seiza (meditation bench), if you can.   Blankets and others props can also be used for sitting on a zabuton.

About Meditation:  Insight or Vipassana Meditation is a simple technique that has been practiced in Asia for over 2,500 years. Beginning  with the focusing of attention on the breath and developing awareness of all phenomena, the practice concentrates and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind's conditioning and thereby to live more fully present in the momentThe teaching is non-sectarian, although the ethics and traditions of Buddhist psychology are included for guidanceThere is no requirement that any beliefs or rituals be adopted, although an open mind is requestedThe practice develops clarity of seeing which allows grasping, judgment and fear to fall awayOne discovers and cultivates qualities such as peace, vitality, compassion, equanimity, wisdom, joy and moral integrity. The ultimate aim of the practice is the ending of suffering in the discovery of an unconditioned and complete freedom. It is suitable for beginners and experienced meditators Everyone is welcome.



All teachings are offered on a dāna basis:  they are freely offered, and they are not commodified by attaching a monetary valueThe gift of the dharma is one of the greatest gifts of all Generosity is the currency of lifeIf you are so moved, you may make an offering for the teachings The practice of giving is a chance to become aware of the feeling of generosity in your life and to recognize the joy that grows in you when you give
