What might you expect at a Meditation Class?
A weekly meditation class can be a wonderful grounding to your practice and sustain your practice through the rest of the week. The structure of different classes varies, but there are a number of activities most classes offer.
Classes begin with a 30-40 minute silent meditation period. If you have a meditation cushion (zafu) and knee cushion (zabuton), it is helpful to bring them to class. It is also fine to sit in a provided chair. Sometimes meditation instruction is offered. If you are new to meditation, let Heather know, and she will be happy to provide meditation instruction.
Sitting meditation is followed by a short break, to stretch, use the restroom, or get tea and share community with others. The second half of class includes a dharma talk, which is teaching period often containing stories and examples from the insight meditation tradition, and how it applies to our lives today. Dharma talks are often followed by a short discussion period. Class ends with a short guided meditation. Please, come join us!
