Working Through our Addictive Thinking and Discovering our Heart – A daylong with Kathy Cheney on May 14

Please note the venue has changed to the Unity Church on Veneman Ave.

Insight Meditation Modesto will be offering a daylong with Kathy Cheney on Saturday, May 14th, from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm at the Unity Church on 2467 Veneman Ave., Modesto, on:

Working Through our Addictive Thinking and Discovering our Heart

When we sit down to meditate often we are distressed to see the “thinking mind” that just can’t seem to stop.  With mindfulness we learn to bring caring attention to our addictive patterns of thinking and begin to include them in our hearts.  In this daylong we will practice with the Buddha’s teaching on the Foundations of Mindfulness as a tool for bringing acceptance to our busy mind.

This day is offered by Insight Meditation Modesto and Kathy Cheney. Donations for Kathy and Insight Meditation Modesto are gladly accepted. Please bring a vegetarian potluck dish to share for lunch.  If you wish to sit on the floor and have a zabuton and/or meditation cushion, please bring it.  Chairs will be available.  For the sake of those who may have allergies or sensitivities, we kindly request that you do not wear any perfumes or other scented products to this workshop.
