Nyinthun: Sunday Morning Meditation
Suggested Donation: $5 - $10
Nyinthun is a weekly group practice of sitting and walking meditation held every Sunday from 9AM till noon. The morning begins and ends with a short set of traditional group chants and includes a dharma reading and a practice of compassion for those who have instruction in Tonglen. Meditation instruction, or interviews are available for both new and experienced meditators. When the new moon coincides, participants are led in the chanting of a vivid, powerful group practice called 'The Sadhana of Mahamudra,' written by the Venerable Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
The power of group meditation
The group practice of Nyinthun is one of the most beneficial ways of deepening and extending our meditation. We are supported and carried by the group energy which creates a powerful atmosphere of practice. This energy inspires our own practice further than short daily sessions alone can do. By participating in the weekly nyinthun we can strengthen and deepen our practice which in turn gives momentum to daily practice, so nyinthun and daily practice become mutually supportive.
Nyinthun is best experienced in its entirety, but people are free to arrive and leave at anytime. There is no need to preregister. Coffee and tea are provided.
