Meditations with Samten Chödrön

Mindful or mindless? Present for this moment, this person, this bird song, this flowering tree or just half aware, or completely gone, lost in thought? I think most of us would like to choose mindfulness and presence, at least some of the time. However, if we are swept along by a culture and a daily practice of distraction, we just might miss out on this precious moment.

Join us for Friday morning meditation to strengthen your mindfulness muscles and cultivate the habit of being here, awake, alive in your life. Each Friday there is a combination of guided and silent meditation, followed by time for comments and questions.

_____________

Join instructor Thubten Samten Chödrön on Fridays at 10am.

Join us on Zoom in our special meditation room a few minutes before 10am.

Your instructor: Thubten Samten Chödrön (Nyingje Gloria Norgang, PhD). Samten learned to meditate as a teenager and it was so powerful for her that she wanted everyone to experience its benefits. She introduced it to young children with whom she worked, then with women in prison and has continued to share it in every work situation she has entered. She has been teaching meditation in various forms for more than 40 years now and looks forward to meditating with you.
