Pre-Meditation Buddhist Chanting Practice @ Center for Mindfulness & Insight Meditation
Feb 23 @ 9:15 am – 9:25 am

Each Saturday we are offering an optional short Buddhist recitation practice prior to our regular meditation session. This offering runs from 9:15 to 9:25, and is for those who wish to place their insight meditation practice within the context of a broader and more explicit Buddhist path. At the same time, it is not necessary for you to see yourself as an adherent of the Buddhist religion in order to participate in this pre-meditation practice. Drop in sometime and see if it feels helpful for you.

Family Program for Kids & Teens @ The Center for Mindfulness & Insight Meditation
Feb 23 @ 9:30 am – 10:45 am

Now your children can enjoy the benefits of mindfulness also. Sangha member, high school teacher, and mindfulness instructor, Jim Davis, will be starting a Family Program at our Wenham center beginning September 15. Meetings will be the first and third Saturdays of each month and run concurrently with our practice time, in a separate part of the building. The Family Program will involve teaching mindfulness to children and adolescents using a variety of activities and techniques, including our Mahasati method. Parents will have to remain on the property during the program, but they can choose to either practice in the meditation hall with the adults while their children are having fun together, or stay with the kids. If you’re kids are interested in attending the Program, or if you can volunteer, or if you know of a teenager who might be a good fit, please email Jim at: fynlis2016@gmail.com.
