New Additions to Schedule this Holiday Season in Hanover

ThanksGifting FrIday: Friday Nov 28: 10:30am - 12pm 

Join South Shore Insight in a program of meditation and conversation that will take us to a place of mindfulness, thanks and wisdom all beyond the mall. We will open our doors early (but not that early) at 10:30 on this Friday as a break and refuge from the shopping frenzy (or the buy-nothing action) of the day and invite all to stop by at 10:30 for a program sure to be a refreshing balm for what can be a consuming season.

Insight Meditation Yoga - Thursdays, Oct 2 - Dec 11 (not meeting 11/27), 7:00 to 8:30pm  LOCATION: SSIMC Home Location: 1130 Washington Street, Hanover MA 02339

With  Paul Cheevers |This practice is first and last a sitting meditation practice. Gentle mindful movement (asana) flows from the sitting, standing and lying postures back to the posture of seated meditation. A ninety minute class generally consists of seated guided meditation, mindful movement including standing, walking and lying, followed by a seated meditation; about half of the class is lightly guided meditation and half is guided yoga postures. Breath awareness accompanies throughout this practice and the cultivation of a relaxed awareness in silent meditation is the intent and outcome. Recommended for individuals interested in integrating a mindful sitting practice with slow and simple mindful yoga postures. Plenty of chairs, cushions and benches are available for sitting. Some yoga mats are available at the Center and you're welcome to bring your own mats. The Therevada Buddhist practices of Insight Meditation accompanied by the teachings taught by the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram of India are at the roots of this practice.

REGISTRATION: Please scroll down to the Online Registration section. You may also drop-into this series: no online registration required, sustaining donation per class $10.
