Path of Sincerity Sangha

Insight Meditation Banner POSWeekly Group

Dates: Tuesdays evening, 7-9pm Pacific Time
Commitment: no RSVP needed
Location:  Zoom / Virtual, visit this link.
Password: meditation

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.

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 offer a donation, please send via paypal to david@pathofsincerity.com, via venmo to Djsudar (last 4 of phone# are 3578), or via credit card.

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