Path of Sincerity Sangha

 

Insight Meditation Banner POS1) Weekly Group

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

***Note: due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus, we will be meeting online until it is safe to meet again at our normal location in NE Portland***

Brief 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 love, wisdom and inner freedom. We aspire to build community, explore Buddhist philosophy in a down-to-earth way, and discover the place where our full humanity intersects with a rich spiritual life.

A typical gathering includes around 30 minutes of lightly guided meditation, an interactive talk and discussion. Everything is offered free of charge, though you may make a donation if you feel called to. All meditation experience levels, genders, ethnicities, ages and orientations are welcome!  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: Due to the priceless nature of these teachings, I offer this group purely on donation, with no expectations.  If you are curious how to go about making a donation, or why it is a worthwhile thing to do, I encourage you to read this article.  If you’d like to contribute, you can send donations via paypal to david@pathofsincerity.com or via venmo to Djsudar (last 4 of phone# are 3578).
