Material development only gives us sensory pleasure, but to be lastingly happy we need to develop our minds. We need calm minds.
– His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
Shamatha means “to abide in peace”. It is the practice of tranquility or stabilizing meditation. Shamatha meditation helps us cultivate the skills needed to develop a focused, calm and relaxed mind.
Please join us on Monday evenings for one hour of silent and audio-guided meditation. The audios are provided by Ven. Mary Reavey, a Buddhist nun who has led many Shamatha retreats and guides meditations with a great sense of warmth and wisdom. The meditation sessions will frequently refer to Lama Alan Wallace’s book “The Attention Revolution” (ISBN 9780861712762). If you wish to receive the link to her full-length teachings, please fill in the form here.
We warmly invite everyone to join. Meditating in a group gives support to each other, and keeps this practice alive. This is a group practice and not an introductory course, but beginners are always welcome to join.
