Beginners’ Mind Sangha

Due to pandemic, meetings are cancelled until further notice.

This group is for beginners, people who want a shorter sitting period, those who want to practice earlier in the evening, or anyone else who wants to attend. After ten minutes for visiting, announcements and introductions, we sit in meditation for twenty minutes, then after that discuss our current topic of study, ending at 6:30 p.m. with either a short metta (loving-kindness) meditation or a dedication of the benefits of the evening’s practice to all beings. Meditation instructions for beginners are always available.

In 2015 Dharma Zephyr’s Beginners Mind group considered “the hook” – that moment we all experience of grasping, tensing, tightening, and closing down. For more information on this study, please go HERE.  Click outline for the study outline.  Click readings for readings.

Currently the group is reading The Mind Illuminated by John Yates.  As we read aloud during the meeting, there is no need to buy the book.

We also lead a FAMILY NIGHT once a quarter – check the events page for details.

The co-facilitators, Jeff Froschauer, and Cheryl Macy, offer guided meditation instructions for newcomers. No registration is necessary and there is no charge, though traditionally we offer a donation to cover costs.
