This Monday Sept. 26 , the gathering of the Meditation Circle will feature an annual visit from students in the world religions class at Charleston Catholic High School. As a result, much of the gathering will be devoted to a Q-and-A about meditation and basic instruction in sitting meditation.
Also, the Meditation Circle will temporarily be suspending the Qigong instruction due to some scheduling issues caused by the move to the new Monday meeting format, which is in the process of being tweaked.
We will continue to meet from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Except for this Monday’s visit from the students, we will us the 5:30 to 6 p.m. time for basic instruction in sitting, standing and walking meditation, discussion about maintaining a regular practice and a weekly reading from the Dhammapada, a collection of core Buddhist teachings.
As ever, your feedback is most welcome.
