Meditation

I offer basic Shamatha (Mindfulness of Breath) meditation instruction and facilitation. Below you will find a few downloadable guided meditations of varying length and guidance for you to use anytime.

 

Because of COVID-19, our weekly group meditations have temporarily moved to an online Zoom format. We hope to start sitting together in person soon! Additionally, all meditation retreats have been cancelled. 

If you are interested in personal Meditation instruction, please contact me and I'll be happy to work with you.

Meditation and Mindfulness Community

The intention behind this weekly meeting in Corvallis is to cultivate an inclusive mindfulness community. If we are to continue to grow and live meaningful lives, we need each other. Each week, we meditate as a group then share our experiences practicing weekly mindfulness exercises such as; attention, compassion, equanimity and loving-kindness. We’ll also examine our values and learn to apply them skillfully in our lives. We’ll generate more wisdom by exploring our misperceptions, biases and unhealthy motivations. All that is required to attend is an interest in cultivating peace and living a meaningful and purposeful life. 

Schedule:

Thursdays 7:00 - 8:00 PM

Silent Meditation Retreat

 

Nourish Yourself with a Day of 

Silence, Meditation and Community. 

 

You will be guided through different Shamatha meditations, walking meditations and relaxing body scans. Expect for brief introductions and a short period of time at the end for reflections, we will remain in silence all day. There will be free time where you can  journal or spend some time in the beautiful landscape surrounding the Trappist Abbey. Please dress accordingly. I prefer that you Do Not bring a book. 

 

Our potluck lunch will be in silence. Please bring a dish to share. Also, to keep this environmentally friendly, please bring your own plate, cutlery, coffee/tea mug and water bottle.  Coffee and tea will be provided.

 

Meditation  cushions and benches are available but please feel free to bring your own.

 

And Please, leave your phone in the car or at home.

“What a great way to spend a day!  The grounds were beautiful and radiated peace. Under Dan’s gentle and loving guidance the day of silent meditation was a breeze, yet deeply rewarding. I’ll be back.”

~ J. K. Oct 2019

"My day with Dan at the beautiful Trappist Abbey for his Silent Meditation Retreat was illuminating, relaxing and full of insights. Dan facilitates a safe, loving and insightful experience, whether you are new to meditation or at it for many years. And for those, like me, who might worry about the physical challenge of sitting, the day is organized into manageable, focused sections with ample opportunity to walk, reflect, and simply and silently, be quiet. If you can, join him."
