DSC02893adj2    SILENT MEDITATION

2nd and 4th Thursdays, 6:30-7:30 PM

Suitable for meditators who have a method already, and know they can sit for an hour.  During the hour, you are welcome to stretch or stand up quietly.   There will be no official break.  Sometimes the monks join us.


Please be on time to all meditations, talks, and book study so you don’t disturb others.


Meditation for lay people took off in Burma/Myanmar, then spread to Thailand, and in the 1970’s, came here to America.  Southeast Asia is at the heart of meditation.  Theravada in Olympia bases its methods on the Buddha’s instructions in the suttas.  His way lead him to enlightenment.
