SHOW ME DHARMA (SMD) is a non-profit organization dedicated to making the study and practice of Insight Meditation available to Mid-Missouri. We support and encourage the development of community based upon Theravada Buddhist ideals, teachings and practice.
EVERY THIRD FRIDAY OF THE MONTH
Friday August 18 at 7:00 pm
Location: Show Me Dharma
Cost: Offered on a dana (donation) basis
Chanting into meditation is based on the yogic practice of raising energy and quickly stopping. The mantras chanted carry a vibration that shifts the consciousness into a broader perspective, as well as releasing the places of holding around the heart. We chant for an extended period, then stop to experience the energy in stillness. Everyone is welcome to enjoy this experience and this community of committed practitioners.
COMMITTED PRACTICE GROUPS
resume in September–New Members Welcome
The committed practice groups are an opportunity to bring the practice of insight meditation into all aspects of daily life. It is for those with several months’ experience with the practice of meditation. Participants register and commit to regular attendance of the meetings. The classes consists of a daily meditation practice, readings on a relevant dharma topic, and practice exercises designed to deepen mindfulness both in formal sitting meditation and in daily life.
There is No Public Talk on Friday
