The Mt. Adams Zen Buddhist Temple is sponsoring a weekly drop-in meditation class in Hood River, facilitated by August Jensen and Kaye Jones, focusing on Vipassana (mindfulness) and Metta (loving-kindness) practices. Each session will consist of a short Dharma talk (presenting the view, theory, philosophy of practice) and instruction on formal technique, followed by a period of meditation practice, to conclude with a group discussion and Q & A.
Aimed at developing our ability to open to, and inhabit our lives, this group welcomes all skill-levels, from beginner to advanced practitioners. Each week we will explore different aspects of the practice (body, breath, emotions, mind, thinking, daily life) and leave space at the end to discuss the variety of challenges and insights we discover along the path.
