Weekly Mindfulness Meditation | May 27

peaceful rocks

We are excited to announce the new Mindfulness Meditation group!

Instructor: Michael Gilroy has been involved in Buddhism, primarily Zen, since 1980. For the past 7 years, he has studied with an exceptional meditation teacher in the Theravada tradition (via Thicht Nhat Hanh) here in Boston and looks forward to sharing his experience with those who choose to join the FPD sitting. As to other background in spirituality, he has completed training in integrating body awareness (embodiment practice) and the study of Tantra; is part of a spiritual community at Easton Mountain in New York; and assists in retreats of "The Body Electric School" throughout the US.

All Are Welcome: We welcome you and anyone else who may be interested to join in. Both consistent and drop-in attendance are welcome. Folks who would like to be on the announcement email list should email to be added. 

Cost: As is traditional within Buddhism, the teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless. Attendees will not be required to pay for the class, but everyone will be welcome to contribute at the end of each session via "dana," a practice of cultivating generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart, supporting not just the teacher, but also First Parish Dorchester, the larger community, and your own practice. 

What to Bring: Attendees may wish to bring a water bottle, a cushion or other prop to sit on, and a small blanket or shawl if you tend toward getting chill. You will also be welcome to use one of the limited number of cushions available, or sit on the floor or the provided benches or chairs, however you are most comfortable.

Childcare: Some folks who are planning to attend the Mindfulness Meditation circle are organizing a group of older children (at least 7 years old) who may gather for a homework club upstairs while their parent(s) meditate downstairs.


When: Wednesdays beginning April 22nd


Where: Allen Parlor at First Parish Dorchester

10 Parish Street Dorchester
