Meditation training next week

One week from today will be the inaugural event in the School for Contemplative Practices. We anticipate about ten participants but to get a more accurate count please sign up online. We will gather in the parlor at Pilgrim at 10 to begin the program. We will end with a light lunch at noon. The cost of the lunch is covered in your $15 registration fee but there will be a donation requested for the teaching in keeping with the Buddhist tradition of dana.

Our core topic will be the art of meditation and our teacher will be Jon Yaffe. There is more about him on the sign up page.

We will place the discipline of meditation in the context of the larger matter of contemplation. We will take a look at some of the meanings of the term and begin to clarify for all of us just what we are hoping to do in the context of the School for Contemplative Practices.
