Welcome to our Sangha
Sangha is a word in Pali and Sanskrit that can be translated as community or association. Insight Meditation (also known as Vipassana) is the practice of moment-to-moment mindfulness. Through careful and sustained attention to the present moment we experience for ourselves the ever-changing flow of the mind-body process. Having this awareness we gain insight, compassion and happiness.
“…when you are in the present moment you are free. Free from the past, free from the future. Free from expectations, free from judgments. ...Free to awaken, to open, to tap into the happiness that is within you always – the happiness that is your true nature. Free to be just as you are. Free to just be.”
Our primary activity is silent meditation, normally held each Tuesday evening at the First Congregational Church, 216 East Gurley, Prescott, Arizona.
Until further notice we will not be meeting at First Congregational, but will "meet" online instead. Go to our Connect page for details.
All are welcome, of any race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, ability, culture, or ethnicity.
