Philip OsgoodMeditation Teacher
I approach the process of leading meditation sessions at our weekly sangha as an opportunity to share my practice experience with others, as opposed to acting in some formal role as teacher. I believe this attitude helps foster the tangible sense of communality that arises during our group practice. I find it very inspiring to hear feedback from participants who find our sessions both personally beneficial as well as a welcome opportunity to experience the joy and synergy of practicing with others.
Anyone coming to visit our weekly sangha gatherings can expect to find a group of welcoming and friendly practitioners. We meet in a spacious yoga studio and sit in a circle, either on chairs or cushions on the wooden floor. The practice leader begins the evening session with some introductory comments about the particular aspect of Innate Wisdom and Compassion we’ll be exploring that evening. After the close of the formal session, participants are encouraged to ask questions or share comments about their practice experience.
