We are a group of people that meet weekly for community and meditation. Our aim is to provide a place for us to meet with a foundation of non-harming to support each other in creating a more peaceful world. Beginners are always welcome. Each meeting will include meditation instructions, wisdom teachings and group discussion. Meditation will be done in chairs. The Insight Richmond meditation group welcomes all cultures and identities, and will offer meditation instruction and support for both beginners and experienced practitioners.
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly."
Martin Luther King Jr
You might feel that you can't meditate because of an idea about yourself or about meditation. However to meditate we start where we are - with a busy mind or restless heart. Mindfulness meditation is not about coming to a kind of blank thoughtless state - in actuality, it is not about coming into any particular state at all. Mindfulness meditation is way of observing and experiencing the totality of our experience moment by moment. Mindfulness allows us to practice peace with everything that arises both during meditation and non-meditation times including impatience, grief or ease. We unlearn our old habits of judging our thoughts, feelings and experiences while developing new habits of non-judgmental awareness. When the mind is clear and free then wisdom and intuition arise naturally.
"There is no way to peace, peace is the only way." A.J. Muste
