Drop-In Meditation Groups
Please join us on Sunday mornings at our drop-in meditation group in Vienna. Our intention is to provide a relaxed place for you to come learn or practice Vipassana meditation with a group of like-minded individuals. Class will typically consist of appx. 30 minutes of guided sitting meditation, followed by a dharma talk, or Q&A. Chairs are provided; feel free to bring your own cushion.
FEE: This class if offered on a “dana” basis. Dana is the Pali word for generosity. Your donations go toward the space rental and to support the teacher. There will be a basket for dana near the door when you leave. Lack of funds should not be an obstacle to coming to class, so please practice generosity as you are able.
Donate Online: If you would like to make your contribution by credit card, you may do so here. All donations help to defray the costs of space rental, and teacher support. We appreciate your generosity!
