Drop-in Mindfulness Class

Weekly , Weds  7- 8 p.m.


Lead by the EBS Meditation Instructors group, these classes are designed to help people establish and maintain a personal mindfulness meditation practice. You are welcome to come as often as you like, and no advance registration is required.

We teach the most fundamental meditation style that the Buddha taught to his first followers, called Shamatha or "Calm Abiding"- a mindfulness practice of being present and awake by following your breath.  The same technique is used by Buddhists and non-Buddhists worldwide. And we also welcome people using other meditation styles who want to discuss their practice with fellow meditators.

Each class begins with a short talk about why we meditate, followed by step-by-step instruction, a brief meditation period, and then discussion.

Mindfulness Meditation Classes are coordinated by Mick Wiggins ( and staffed by a team of specially trained EBS teachers.

Classes are free and donations are also accepted.
