A Free Introduction to Advaita Meditation
Don Moir and Lalla McHugh will introduce the practice of Advaita Meditation from 7 to 8:30 p.m., May 14, at the Waltham Public Library.
Advaita is a philosophical and spiritual tradition of self-realization. At the heart of Advaita is the concept of unity. The Sanskrit word advaita means “not two,” or non-dual. This philosophy asserts that there is something essentially good, intelligent and awake in each of us— and that that something is no different from the essence of this creation. Advaita’s approach is fundamentally experiential. With guidance, practice and self-examination, individuals can experience deep peace and connect to the love and consciousness that underlie everything.
Moir and McHugh have been members of the Advaita Meditation Center (AMC), in Waltham, for more than 20 years. They practice mantra meditation and participate in group meetings at AMC for the study and practice of non-dual philosophy as expounded in Advaita Vedanta texts and by modern teachers. Currently, as volunteers, they both teach meditation at AMC and guide new practitioners in meditation.
