Canceled - Mindfulness Meditation

Tuesday, November 2111:00 AM—12:00 PMManchester Community Center40 Beach Street, Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA, 01944

The facilitator is not available so today's session has been canceled. Join us again on 11/28. 

Meditation happens weekly at 11AM at the Manchester Community Center(except for October 31).

Alida Bryant is a Dharma Leader and meditation instructor under the guidance of Anam Thubten Rinpoche. She has been meditating for over 30 years (still very much a beginner!) and studying and practicing with lineage holders in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

Meditation, fundamentally, is about getting to know ourselves better. The mind is a powerful thing, and often leads us on a merry chase that does not always serve us. So we practice becoming familiar with it, coaxing it into the present moment, where it finds rest and ease… and then we do, too. We will learn that thoughts are not a problem in meditation – they are very much a part of our experience, but usually we don’t notice them. We’ll explore the meaning of the saying “You don’t have to believe everything you think!” (I have the bumper sticker to prove it!)

Beginners and experienced meditators are welcome. There will be guided meditation, some silence, and discussion.
