“Meditation teaches us that it’s possible to rest in the reality of the present and not get so caught in the thoughts and ideas that we have.” –Jack Kornfield
I teach Insight or Vipassana Meditation in Brattleboro, Bellows Falls, and around New England. Please see the home page on this site for current teachings.
I lead a meditation group that meets on 2nd and 4th Thursday evenings at 6:45 pm at the Immanuel Episcopal Church Chapel in Bellows Falls, VT. More information about this group is on my home page.
I love teaching, especially witnessing students deepening in mindfulness, seeing more clearly and learning to love themselves and others more deeply. I am touched when I see the caring and community that develops between people when they undertake dharma practice together. Teaching is a gift to me, and part of how I make sure I never stop being a student myself.
“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 things. You will see many strange and wonderful things come and go, but you will be still. This is the happiness of the Buddha.”
