Meditation

We meet the first Monday (7-8:30) of each month and every Tuesday (4-5:30) in the Stearns Room. We welcome everyone, those experienced in meditation and those new to the practice. People come from the First Parish, from Lincoln and from surrounding towns. The Monday sittings have been small group sittings, the Tuesday ones, larger.

Our sittings include silent or guided meditation (on chairs and the occasional cushion) , walking meditation, reading together, mindful discussion and metta practice (prayers for others). We follow the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, who encourages us to combine our meditation practice and our community (called a Sangha in Buddhist terms) with our root faiths. We hope you can join us.
