Tuesday Meditation Session – West Madison
September 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Tuesday, repeating indefinitely
(PLEASE NOTE: Sitting on TUESDAY, SEPT. 26 is cancelled in order for those who wish to attend the Cheri Maples memorial service at 7pm at First Unitarian Society.)
45 minutes of meditation followed by a Dhamma discussion. This gathering is led by Janice Sheppard, who was trained at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery as a Buddhist Lay Minister, and at Spirit Rock Meditation Center as a Community Dharma Leader. The discussion may be based on an dhamma talk, a brief reading, or a sutta that Jan will share. This group sometimes investigates topics over a period of weeks, for example, we recently spent two months going through the seven factors of enlightenment. The evening begins and ends with a brief chant and bowing. Participation in the chanting & bowing is solely a personal choice and is not required. There is also a shrine with a Buddha image, candles and incense. If you have a cushion, please bring it, however there are some cushions here and chairs are available.
