Seattle Insight Meditation Teacher Steve Wilhelm is offering a six-week meditation class for members and friends of the Port Townsend Sangha. The class will be conducted on Zoom.
Everyone is welcome and warmly invited. The class offers initial instruction for beginners and a refresher for the more experienced. If you have a question about the class, or wish to communicate with Steve about the class, write him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Steve writes: Insight meditation, also known as mindfulness or vipassana meditation, comes from the Buddhist tradition. It aims to free the mind from the distortions of self-centeredness, negativity, and confusion. Seeing life as a constantly changing process, one begins to accept pleasure and pain, fear and joy, and all aspects of life with increasing balance and equanimity. This balanced awareness, grounded in the present moment, leads to peace and growing understanding of the nature of things. Out of this seeing emerges wisdom and compassion.
Insight meditation is a moment-by-moment investigation of the mind and body process. Our experience is explored from a balanced and spacious awareness that allows the heart to flower in love. During these six weeks there will be meditation instructions, talks about the philosophy of the practice, at home exercises, and plenty of time for discussion and questions.
Registration includes the six evening sessions and attendance at a day of mindfulness on Saturday, Aug. 14. Registrations will be accepted until July 5th, but early registration is suggested.
