Redwood City, CA

Meditation is one of the key practices taught at IMC. As a type of “technology of transformation” meditation has been taught for millennia as a method for training and developing the mind for the highest spiritual aim of awakening. More recently, meditation has also been extracted from its Buddhist framework in order to harness its benefits for a wide range of applications including simply managing daily tasks and problems. In this daylong we will explore the different types of meditation practices presented in the earliest Buddhist texts and how they may be relevant for our own lives. Join us as we practice and discuss vipassana (insight), samatha (calming), metta (loving-kindness) and anussati (recollection) meditations. 

Diana Clark has a Master’s Degree in Buddhist Studies from the Institute of Buddhist Studies in Berkeley. She practices and teaches at IMC.
