AN INTRODUCTION TO VIPASSANA MEDITATION with Colleen Kerns

The calm and steady mind is our most dependable and enduring ally through all of the change we can neither alter nor avoid. This workshop can benefit both those who currently have an inconsistent or possibly unsatisfactory meditation practice, as well as anyone wanting to start a practice, but may be confused by too many different methods and techniques. Vipassana (a special way of seeing, often referred to as Insight Meditation) is a method of meditation that was taught by the Buddha and his followers. It is a non-sectarian, practical, and scientific method, which relies only on the observation of one's own reality and not on outside or imagined sources. There is no reliance on beads, mantras, images, or other rituals. Buddha taught that this particular method probed at a much deeper level - the source where much of the mental reactivity arises.

Happy holiday season! Thanksgiving has already passed, and the rest of the winter celebrations are right around the corner.  Hooray!

Oh wait, what’s that you say? You’re feeling a little overwhelmed already? Travel arrangements have you in a tizzy; the gift list (not to mention the grocery list) is ever-expanding; the house needs a deep clean & decorating; and don’t even get me started on the upcoming family fireworks!

Here’s the good news: community-style group acupuncture session is back!  Come chill out, de-stress, and maybe even treat yourself to a well deserved cup of tea & a cookie.

As in previous acupuncture happy hours, you can drop in anytime 2:00-3:30pm, set up your mat, lie down and relax.

When you’re ready for your needles to be removed, simply let the acupuncturist know by raising your hand or telling her as she walks by.
