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’ll 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. 


Thursdays 7:00 - 8:00 PM

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.

“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."
