Unitarians offer Buddhist meditation day

By
From page A5 | November 15, 2012 |

The Buddhist Meditation and Study Group at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis will host a day of meditation and teaching by Vipassana teacher John A. Travis from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8.

This daylong event will be in the church’s Main Building at 27074 Patwin Road. The day will consist of periods of sitting and walking meditation, instructions and talks by the teacher. It is appropriate for both beginning and seasoned meditators.

Vipassana (insight meditation) is a simple and accessible practice for opening the heart, clearing the mind and living in a peaceful and free way.

Travis has been teaching meditation since 1986. He has studied in Asia with senior teachers of both Vipassana and Tibetan Buddhist traditions, and recently returned from a year of intensive study and mediation in India.

In addition, he is a founding teacher of Mountain Stream Meditation Center in Nevada City and a teacher for Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Marin County.

In keeping with the Buddhist practice of dana (generosity), no fee is charged for this event. This gives each participant the opportunity to freely engage in the practice of generosity, which the Buddha taught as the first step toward freedom.

Generosity to support the teacher is especially encouraged — an opportunity to donate through cash or checks will be made available during the event. Donations to support the local dharma community, and this particular event, also are encouraged and welcome.

Pre-register by calling Jo at 530-867-5743 or emailing DavisMeditation@gmail.com.
