Insight Meditation, or Vipassana Meditation, is the practice of training the mind to be  present in every moment of body/mind experience.  It is a practice which comes from the Buddhist tradition but requires no belief or previous experience.  This class  will be taught in English but there will be supplementary materials available in Spanish.

This class is appropriate for beginners, and also for those with established practices who are looking for a ‘refresher’, or just for some inspiration for practice.

Class size will be limited, so registration is required.  To register, email Ann at or call her at 154 5104.
