Meditation at ESA                                                                                 Anyone may attend, no need to register.

Sitting meditation is a practice which helps us live more fully in each moment and to see the interdependent

nature of our experience of life with greater clarity. Practicing in a group helps to deepen and reinforce that

experience.  Mediators of all levels and disciplines are welcome to sit with us for these monthly meditation

sessions.   Bring your own sitting pillow if you use one.  Chairs are provided.

These sessions, on the second Sunday of each month at 10am, generally begin with a short reading, guided

meditation or focus, followed by two twenty minute meditation sittings with a walking meditation break in

between.  You may join MeetUp online, if you want to be in the loop for updates, etc.
