Dharma Moon Sangha Meditation Group
Mar 31 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until May 26, 2020
Buddhist meditation group in the Plum Village tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh (Emmaus * Allentown * Bethlehem * Easton * Lehigh Valley)
We gather each Tuesday evening at LivingRoom Yoga in Emmaus.
Practitioners should arrive between 7:00-7:10 p.m. and we will begin our practice at 7:15. We do our best to collectively create an energy of peace, freedom, and “no hurry.”
If possible, practitioners should bring something to sit on during sitting meditation (a meditation cushion or bench) and also something to lay on (a blanket or mat) in case we do guided meditation while lying down. If you do not have these items, that’s OK! We have extras available. There are also chairs available for those who are not comfortable sitting on the floor.
The structure of our evening is roughly:
* Brief welcome, introductions.
* A short reading by our facilitator (a few minutes of Buddhist
wisdom from Thich Nhat Hanh or another Buddhist
* Twenty minutes of meditation (sometimes silent sitting
meditation, sometimes guided meditation).
* Walking meditation.
* Perhaps another short reading.
* Twenty minutes of meditation (sitting or guided).
* Dharma Sharing – Time for sharing about one’s spiritual
practice in a non-judgmental atmosphere in which one can
speak (only if s/he chooses) without receiving
Attendance is generally 5 to 10 practitioners. We finish up by 9:00 p.m.
