Weekly Drop In Meditation
With Venerable Yangchen
February 17, 2024
Saturday 9:00 am – 10:00 am
*****This week’s meditation will be in the Pine Room *****
We are so pleased to announce that our dear Ven. Yangchen will be leading Saturday drop-in Meditations weekly In-person only.
Venerable’s guided meditations bring together a refreshing and precious combination of simplicity, depth, and accessibility. These weekly, hour-long sessions are of great relevance and value to long-term Buddhist practitioners as well as to complete newcomers to the Buddhist path. No doubt this is partly thanks to the wisdom, warmth of heart and straightforward sincerity with which the meditations are delivered.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE MEDITATION:
Come a little early to find a seat, and settle in. The meditation leader, Ven. Yangchen, will give a brief explanation of how to adjust your mental and physical posture. Then we will start with concentration meditation, focusing our awareness on the breath. After a quick break approximately midway through to stretch our legs and make any needed adjustments, we sit back down for another 15-20 minutes of contemplation on various Dharma topics – lessons taught by the Buddha and the centuries of later Buddhist masters.
Ven Yangchen has been a nun for 23 years, she is a lifelong learner, and has dedicated much time to study, practice, and retreat. She has a deep and enduring connection with Land of Medicine Buddha (LMB) and has also offered service at Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s house in CA., Shantideva…
