Mindfulness for Beginners
On weekdays our sessions last about an hour. A typical session begins with 20 minutes sitting in silence, 10 minute group mindful walking, followed by another 20 minute sitting with an inspirational reading. This environment is perfect for beginners, as well as experienced practitioners, wishing to add a sense of calm to their day. Alternating sitting with mindful walking allows the body to relax and the mind to settle.
Sundays at MMC
Three Sundays each month are set aside for an extended practice period from 9AM to 12PM. We begin with sharing tea and light conversation and add a period of chanting before the meditation practice. This is a gentle invitation to go deeper for those who are interested. We usually end with a reading during which all are invited to participate.
A full day of meditation. One Sunday each month is devoted to a full day of practice, from 9AM until 3PM. Bring a lunch and join us as we practice and eat together in silence. We invite you to share with us these special days.
