A weekly gathering, open to anyone interested in meditation, is held on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM in Westside’s Social Hall. Beginning in December 2017, instruction for people new to meditation or wanting a review will be offered at 6:30 PM on the first Wednesday of the month. Each session includes 25 - 30 minutes of meditation with discussion of Buddhist teachings and occasional chanting. The group is facilitated by Jill Boone, an honorary Buddhist lay minister and long time practitioner of vipassana (insight meditation). For more information, Jill can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
