As our understanding of mindfulness grows, we come to realize the deep importance of a regular meditation practice. Gathering as a group to meditate not only facilitates our personal meditation practice, but it also offers us the strength and joy of community.

A Still Forest Pool is a twice-a-month gathering for anyone interested in mindfulness meditation. Each class will be an hour, with the predominant focus on meditation. There will be approximately 15 minutes of reading, gentle guidance, or words of inspiration followed by 35-45 minutes of guided meditation. These gatherings can serve as a complement to Awakened Heart, Awakened Mind or can act as a stand-alone offering for those participants interested in longer meditation sessions. Meditation instructor Liz Reese will be leading this class session.

As Ajahn Chah, a teacher in this tradition, has said: “Try to be mindful and let things take their natural course. Then your mind will become still in any surroundings – like a clear forest pool. All kinds of wonderful, rare animals will come to drink at the pool – and you will clearly see the nature of all things. You will see many strange and wonderful things come and go, but you will be still.” This is the gentle promise of practice. We hope to see you there.
