We meet every Monday evening from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. at the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (ERUUF), in the Commons Room of the CARE Building. Newcomers are always welcome. A concurrent session providing instruction in basic meditation practice is offered on the 3rd Monday of each month from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m.
Monthly Monday Night Schedule
Monday night meetings include a half hour of sitting meditation, usually followed by walking meditation. Additional elements vary from week to week as follows:
- First and second Mondays: Key Buddhist teachings and practices;
- Third Mondays: Recitation of the Five Precepts, concurrent meditation instruction;
- Fourth Mondays: Mettā (goodwill or loving-kindness) meditation;
- Fifth Mondays: Special topics.
We hold a morning retreat on the 2nd Saturday of every month from 9:00 a.m. to noon, providing an opportunity for more extended practice. The morning typically includes two or three sitting periods, walking meditation, optional gentle yoga practice (please bring a mat if you wish to do the yoga practice), and chanting of the refuges and precepts. Saturday morning retreats are usually held in the Chapel at ERUUF.
