Join us for free meditation instruction and group sitting meditation on the Chapman University Campus!
We practice sitting meditation together most Monday evenings at the Fish Interfaith Center in Wilkinson Founders Chapel (the small chapel room adjacent to Wallace All Faiths Chapel). First timers and beginners are welcome!
We will begin with meditation instruction for the first half hour, and then practice meditation together, which will be followed by a brief reading, and then a discussion group and socializing for those who wish to stay.
IMPORTANT: Please check this page regularly to confirm there will be sitting meditation, as the space is not available every Monday.
