Meditate with Alameda Sangha

 

Meditation might be just the thing voters need before deciding the nation and city’s future. This Saturday, Oct. 1, the United Methodist Church, 2311 Buena Vista Ave. is hosting Alameda Sangha’s day of meditation led by Rebecca Dixon and Deb Kerr. They will explore stillness and build skills that lead to concentration.

“Insights can occur when our minds become still enough for us to see the moment-by-moment nature of all experience,” Dixon said. 

Learn what it is like to really experience stillness. Experience how to pacify restless minds and lay the groundwork for deepening concentration. 

“In this day of silent practice with each other, we will weave together classic teaching and techniques to build a foundation of well-being, ease and playfulness that supports skillful effort for unification of the mind,” said Kerr. 

Chairs and tea will be provided. Bring any personal mediation gear you require and a bag lunch. 

Arrive by 8:45 a.m. in order to be ready to start at 9. The cost is on a donation basis. Participants can drop-in. Preregister at alamedasangha@gmail.com.
