Midweek Sittings

Tuesdays at 5:45pm - Meditation and Discussion
Our Tuesday evening meditation sessions are held at our White Heron Sangha Mediatation Center in Avila Village (maps).  We sit for 30 minutes. Then, those who choose to may stay for a discussion. The sittings are facilitated by long-time sangha members James Coleman and Arlene Winn.

Wednesdays at 6:00pm - Mindfulness for Everyone
"Mindfulness for Everyone" sittings occur on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 7 pm at our White Heron Sangha Mediatation Center in Avila Village (maps). The purpose of this group is to support one's ongoing mindfulness practice, both on the cushion and in daily life.  Teachings are presented using mainstream language in a way that is true to their deepest roots and fullness, with a view toward the integration of mindfulness into all aspects of our lives. 

During each meeting we meditate for 20 minutes, have a 5 to 10 minute presentation, then allow time for discussion.  This group is suitable for those new to mindfulness practice, as well as for more experienced practitioners.  It is appropriate for those from many walks of life and various belief systems.  It is a completely open drop-in group with no expectation of regular attendance.  Some come nearly every week and others drop in only occasionally.

These sittings are led by Mick Malotte. Mick has been studying and practicing mindfulness meditation for 20 years.  He is a physician and a graduate of Spirit Rock’s CDL teacher training program. If you have any questions email him at mjmalotte@gmail.com


Third Saturday of Each Month 3:00 to 5:00pm - Reflective Insight Meditation
This gentle, open-hearted practice is suitable for  experienced or  beginning meditators and is compatible with many meditation practices.   We will have a  30 minute sit, then take 5 to 10 minutes to look back and review our sittings. We may have a short discussion and then another 20-30 minute meditation. Through reflection, we cultivate a self-honest and safe inner environment where we can learn to meet whatever our mind comes up with qualities such as awareness, kindness, patience, curiosity, and generosity.

These sittings are held at Crows End Retreat in Squire Canyon. For more information,  email Wendy Liepman at wliepman@yahoo.com
