Buddhists & Meditators
Moscow-Pullman Mindfulness Sangha meets 6:30-8:00 pm Tuesday evenings in the UUCP sanctuary.
We meet to meditate and discuss mindfulness and Buddhist ideas and how we might apply our practices to our lives, using texts written by mindfulness teachers as a means to deepen our practice. We are a mixture of ages, gender, and degrees of belief, but we’re all lay practitioners ranging from those just interested in mindfulness, secular Buddhism, and those who are pursuing further study. We discuss topics with humor, compassion, and encouragement for each other. All are welcome.
Each week we begin with a brief check-in, a time to share something about our mindfulness practice or more generally about our lives, we then practice a guided meditation together, and finally have a group discussion on a chosen topic. No experience is required, nor do you need to own or read the current book. Starting in October, we’ll be using a new book to spur our discussion and meditations: “Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics: A 10% Happier How-to Book” by Dan Harris, Jeff Warren, and Carlye Adler (2017). Amidst the retelling of a 10-day road trip to promote meditation, it provides a variety of meditations and a humorous look at the obstacles we face in starting or sustaining a meditation practice.
