Insight Meditation Group
NEW! - Beginning in January 2020
A bi-weekly group is forming for people who practice Vipassana (Insight) meditation, or who want to learn Insight practice. This is a peer-led group with Amy serving as primary guide, at first. Sitting meditation, discussion about the dharma, community connection, and maybe some tea.
Details forthcoming. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested/have questions.
Private Meditation Instruction
Mindful meditation is currently experiencing a surge of popularity, and there seem to be as many methods and ways of practicing as there are curious seekers. If you have been wanting to establish a meditation practice, or have trouble maintaining the discipline to keep your practice going, I can help you:
find a dynamic, upright posture that doesn’t leave you in pain;
explore various focusing methods to keep you in present moment awareness;
learn how to apply the insight you gain during meditation to everyday living.
Benefits of Meditation*
Meditation helps us on many levels, from simple relaxation to freedom from suffering and full liberation of heart and mind. It allows us to:
defuse stress and experience greater calm
explore the mind-body relationship
connect to our feelings
expand our sense of who we are, beyond our fears and self-judgment
find genuine happiness
discover inner resources that can change our everyday lives
awaken our capacity for insight and wisdom
transform our worldview from one of isolation and confusion to one of connection, clarity and compassion
broaden our perspective and deepen our courage, based on seeing things just as they are
Both short-term consultations and ongoing lesson series are possible. Call to discuss a plan that is designed for your personal needs.
