DONATION BASIS NOTE: In the Insight tradition, the teachings are offered freely, as it is understood that their value is priceless. Our teachers volunteer their time and energy to make these teachings available.

  • Non Doing Meditation Half Day - Saturday, July 22
    When we come to practice, we often seek for something, more peace, more wisdom, more—something-- which we think will make us happy. This can take us a certain distance, but, there is an inherent limitation to it. Any time you are seeking something not already present for happiness, you are seeking something which is conditional.

    In the progression of practice, there can be a loosening of this seeking and a wanting to know what is true can guide our practice. From this bigger container, we can start to drop the searching. When we drop this, we can start to see more of what has always been here—our true nature. Along the way we also surrender our sense that we know how things should be, but just accept each moment as it is without manipulation.

    This morning session will be oriented to having a taste of this radical acceptance. There will be different meditations, a talk and time for questions and answers. Please come.
