We extend an open invitation to those curious or interested in Vipassana or Insight meditation and the Universal teachings of Buddhist Psychology and Loving-kindness.  This is a gentle and profound practice for cultivating wisdom, compassion and awakening joy.  There is little emphasis on dogma or comparative religious study.  This is a class that emphasizes the depth practice and methods of Inquiry and Buddhist philosophy. With themes covering everyday life, as well as the nature of self and reality, mindful inquiry enhances each practitioners capacity for real transformation and firmness of heart. Immeasurable blessings may gradually emerge into our lives with skillful application.  Everything else we practice for health and well-being is enhanced by developing a reliable and observant loving awareness, moment to moment.

Insight and Heart-centered meditations originated 2,560 years ago in Northern India and spread throughout the ancient world to us who benefit today. This transformational practice has effectively integrated into our western world, contributing mightily to the development of precious human and universal values.

Meditation, with its profound benefits to contemporary and secular life style, partners with and informs the sciences and western psychology. Many who experience meditation have realized that the cultivation of insight, kindness, brightened self-inquiry and compassion leads to a basic trust and faith in our deepest experience. If we meet life from the core of our inner resilience and skill, we have a better chance at creating the conditions that enhance inner peace and joy from which all beings we know and even those we do not, may benefit greatly.

The strengthening force of kindness, infused with wisdom, transcends the boundary of religion, beliefs, ideology, dogmatism and the cosmology of culture, taking us beyond divisions of otherness towards the awakened heart and mind.
