Newcomers’ Night & Calm Abiding Meditaton
October 19 @ 6:00 pmFree
Join us for Calm Abiding Meditation followed by a talk by the lamas and gathering. All are welcome!
Calm Abiding meditation is common to many traditions of Buddhism. In this practice, we rest our attention on a simple meditative support, such as the breath. Instead of following thoughts and emotions as we usually do, we release them and maintain our connection to the support.
After a guided meditation practice with our two lamas, there will be a welcome and introduction to all the classes and offerings this fall. This gathering is sometimes lovingly called “Newcomers’ Night” because it is a great way for new people to meet sangha members and to get the lay of the land at KSC. Simultaneously, many long-time members also like to attend to celebrate the start of a new season of deep and rich learning
