We welcome you to our Monday Night Mindfulness Sitting Group, with founding teacher, Genevieve Tregor
We have been meeting together as Insight Meditation Scottsdale, in person, every Monday for the past 6 years. We are temporarily moving to an online video conferencing format until we can meet again in person.
As always, there will be a meditation with some guidance, followed by a Dharma talk and discussion.
Please join the meeting a few minutes before the start time and plan to stay for the entire meeting to support the container for our community time. We ask meditators to respect the space in the same way one would in a physical space by committing to your practice during the meeting and letting go of other activities and distractions. Thank you for supporting your own, and others' practice space in this way.
No prior meditation experience necessary. This is a drop-in, donation-based meeting.
Suggested Donation: $10-$20. No one turned away for lack of funds. All are welcome! Teachings offered in the Insight Tradition are offered on a 'Dana' (generosity) basis with each giving according to their own circumstances in order to support the whole community. The teacher's offering of the Dharma and your offering to the teacher is a relationship of mutual giving and receiving that has supported the teachings and teachers for over 2500 years. Dana is considered a practice which the Buddha taught as a foundation in his graduated teachings to the lay community. Thank you for your generosity and support!
