Introduction to Insight Meditation Daylong Saturday, June 11th from 9am-4pm This event is offered on a sliding-scale suggested donation of $20-35. As a meditation teacher (now teaching jhana in the tradition of Ayya Khema and Leigh Brasington), Jay is known for conveying challenging subjects in an accessible, humorous style, and this conversation (not a reading!) promises to be just that. Jay Michaelson’s incisive and exquisitely profound insights into our human condition come in full force in The Gate of Tears. Mindfulness is an essential skill in spiritual life that allows us to be present with and inquire into the realities of our lives.

This month we have an article by Thanissaro Bhikkhu on the Buddha's teachings on truths and views, Truths with Consequences.

One of our online programs, Entering the Path, is now accepting applications for Summer 2016.
Lecturing teachers include Bhikkhu Analayo, Ajahn Candasiri, Shaila Catherine, Jake Davis, John Peacock, Joseph Goldstein and Sharon Salzberg. APensees for our time, The Gate of Tears offers deep thinking about our lives that gets us thinking – and feeling. Jay Michaelson guides us, instead of denying, avoiding, explaining away or resisting sadness, to go right into the heart of it. Brian is joined by lecturers including Stephen Batchelor, Joseph Goldstein, Steve Armstrong, Bonnie Duran and others.
One is to take them as signs that the Buddha's teachings on truth and views were subtle and nuanced, and that the contradictions in the puzzles are best treated as intentional paradoxes.

The Buddhist practice of Insight meditation, or vipassana, allows us to establish an skillful way of meeting life with all of its difficulties and challenges. Here we have an antidote to the mindless feel-good ideology, and gentle instructions in attending to the fullness of our experience so we see the value in the downs, not just the ups. He was a Buddhist monk for 19 years and a disciple of the renowned Thai meditation master Buddhadasa Bhikkhu.
This program is suitable for dharma practitioners, professional caregivers, and anyone facing aging, sickness, and dying.
