Our next community gathering will be tomorrow, 1/30, at 10am. Alex M will be guiding. Register here--we look forward to practicing with you!
As we embark on a new year, we want to share some updates on the Minneapolis Insight organization and facilitation team.
This week, Ben and Jean will both be departing to participate in the two-month retreat at Spirit Rock Meditation Center (Jean will return in March). We will hold them with much mudita (sympathetic joy) during this time, and wish them both very fruitful retreats!
In order to support our coordinating team, Jane Rauenhorst will be facilitating some of our regular Sunday sessions in the coming months. As most of you know, Jane is an active member of our community, in addition to practicing and leading programs with Common Ground Meditation Center, the University of St. Thomas, and Macalester College. Jane is also a graduate of the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification program offered by Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach and is currently engaged in the Dharma Teacher’s Mentoring Program with Pam Weiss. We are excited to hear from Jane in this capacity!
We continue to explore our individual practices and how best to support this community as it grows. This summer, we will be considering new offerings and formats for us to practice together. If you have ideas or feedback on how your practice would be best supported by this community, please don’t hesitate to reach out to share.
