Wednesday Meditation

What is the Davis Insight Group?
We are a local Buddhist meditation and study group.
We have been meeting regularly in Davis since 1994.

Generally, we follow a Theravadan practice but all are welcome and will find a comfortable environment for following their Buddhist practice.

Our group does not have a regular teacher; we learn & practice as a community. 

We welcome experienced practitioners and beginners. If you have not meditated with us before, please come a few minutes early on Wednesday evening. If you would like meditation instruction, please let us know in advance.

When do we meet?
Wednesday evenings, 7:00 to 8:30  Meditation & Discussion

Where do we meet?
Usually in the main hall; please check the Announcements page for location changes or cancellations

What do we do?
We begin with a brief ceremony & meditation.
After meditation, we take a short break for tea and conversation.
After tea, we have discuss the Dharma and Buddhist practice in our daily lives.
(See What to expect for more details.) 

What else do we offer?
Meditation instruction is available upon request on Wednesday evenings.
If you have not previously had meditation instruction, we suggest that you investigate Thanisarro Bhikkhu's meditation instructions. If you would prefer an audio, you could try this link (also Thanisarro Bhikkhu, a well-respected American abbot of a Thai Forest Monastery in southern California).
We host a few guest teachers visit each year by invitation.
Please note that if you do not have a Yahoo account, you will first be taken through the steps to create one; after creating a Yahoo account, you will then need to return to the group page to join the group. At that point you will have the opportunity to choose the email address you would like to use as a group member. An excellent opportunity for practicing patience!
