Path of Sincerity Sangha

Insight Meditation Banner POSWeekly Group

Dates: Every other Tuesday evening, 7-9pm Pacific Time
Commitment: no RSVP needed
Location:  Zoom / Virtual, visit this link.

Summary:
This group is devoted to practicing Insight Meditation, a mindfulness-based style of Buddhist Meditation that aims to take us deeper into a life of loving-kindness, wisdom and inner freedom. We aspire to build community, explore Buddhist philosophy in a down-to-earth way, and find ways to bring alive these rich teachings in our own lives.

Flow:
A typical gathering is split into roughly four 30 minutes sections: a lightly guided meditation, time for individual sharing on the theme (passing always allowed), a dharma talk, and either small or large group discussion.  If you want a more detailed intro of a given week’s theme, sign-up for the mailing list or check out the Facebook page.

Cost:
This group is led entirely on the spirit of generosity, aka donation.  Your presence is always the biggest gift, but monetary donations are also greatly appreciated. If you’d like to offer support, please use any of these options.

The 30-minute dharma talk from every evening is available here for streaming/download.

Summer Schedule:
6/1, 6/15, 6/29, 7/13, 7/27, 8/10, 8/24, 9/7, 9/21

From there we will probably return back to weekly meetings, and possibly in-person!
