Biophilia Series: Walking Meditation and Fellowship in the Spirit of Longfellow
We will enter the environment of Mount Auburn in a contemplative walk from Bigelow Chapel with guided meditation incorporating the Poems of Longfellow.
After a 30 minute walk we return to Bigelow Chapel for hot cocoa, and a brief welcome followed by a 45 minute session of sitting meditation with meditation guidance based on the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. All are welcome, regardless of experience or religious background.
Chairs will be provided along with a limited number of meditation cushions. Feel free to bring a cushion if you prefer to sit on the floor.
Rich Snow has been a meditation instructor with Rigpa Fellowship for 26 years, and currently hosts weekly meditation sessions in Waltham. Rich has studied with teachers in the Nyingma and Drikung Kaygu Buddhist traditions as well as the indigenous Bon tradition of Tibet.
Program runs rain or shine, we will adapt to the weather.
