Thursdays 9:30am – 11:00am (Mediation Hall)

Join us for socially-distanced, in-person practice and Dhamma talk every Thursday morning. There is limited attendance so advanced registration required.


  • Advanced registration required (limited attendance): Due to the need to limit the number of people in the Meditation Hall, people will be required to sign up in advance to attend. The maximum number of meditators will be 15. You can register weeks in advance or right before class. If the maximum allowed has been reached, you will not be able to register.
  • Face coverings: Face masks are once again required, regardless of vaccination status (as of August 13, 2021). Please follow CDC and CT State regulations.
  • Maintain social distancing: Attendees are asked to mindfully maintain their distance from others while on the property.
  • Bring your own drink: For safety reasons, we are shutting down the cold/hot water dispenser. We do offer water bottles. NO eating in the meditation hall please.
  • Meditation garden: During the hours of open meditation practice, the meditation garden will be open. Please observe social distancing while there.

While we are making our best efforts to follow expert guidelines for making the environment as safe as possible, the spread of the virus is ultimately beyond our control, so members should make their own determinations whether it is appropriate for them to come.

We teach and practice a type of meditation known as Mahasati meditation. Mahasati in Pali means “great awareness.” It is a form of Vipassana or Insight meditation which originates in Southeast Asia. Mahasati meditation cultivates self-awareness initially through attention to the movement of the body and, at intermediate and more advanced levels, to the movement of the mind.

This ultimately leads to a direct and profound understanding of the origins of suffering in human experience and points the way toward ultimate liberation.

While Mahasati meditation has its roots in Buddhism, it is not necessary to accept any type of religious doctrine in order to practice. It is also possible to practice it conjointly with other forms of religious practice.

Donations are greatly appreciated.
