From left to right, the crew pictured is:
Please join Robert and Gary for a powerful New Year's grief ritual to pave the way for joy, forgiveness, and compassion in the coming year. December 31st, 8:15pm till 12:30am.
Please join us for another edition of Buddhist Movie Night at Portland Insight Meditation Community (PIMC). We'll be watching "Samsara" on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019. The screening will begin at 6:30pm.
This is a chance to come together as a community, enjoy Buddhist/mindfulness-themed cinema, and discuss how the material relates to our understanding of the Buddha and the Dharma.
Insight Meditation or Vipassana is a simple technique, beginning with focusing the attention on the breath. However, simple doesn't always mean easy. It can be very helpful to have the support of a group and a teacher to navigate the challenges that arise in this practice.
We will be providing and serving dinner at Jean's Shelter for the Transitions Project.
