Vipashyana Meditation Class

Monday, August 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Time: 7:00 – 8:15pm
Instructor: Venerable Lekshay Sangpo

Shamatha (calm abiding) and Vipashyana (insight) are ancient types of meditation that come from India. Each type has its own benefits. This class will be on Shamatha or calm abiding. There is a regular Friday evening Calm Abiding class at the Monastery. This one will be more in depth.

A daily meditation practice of any type is a very beneficial, life-long activity. This class is for both beginners and current practitioners. It is never too soon to learn meditation, but it can sometimes be too late!

Venerable Lekshay recommends reading Zen Mind, Beginners Mind by Shunryu Suzuki. Please wear loose and comfortable clothing for meditating. It’s also good for beginners to have some rolled up fluffy socks for knee support.
