Vipassana Meditation Sessions at JP Centre Yoga
The Boston Center for Contemplative Practice (BCCP) will host three meditation sessions —Awakening Insight: Discovering the Nature of Mind and Consciousness through Vipassana—from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on November 27, December 4 and 11, 2023, at JP Centre Yoga, in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, and via Zoom with each session recorded and available the following week. As vipassana is a Pali term meaning “insight” or “seeing clearly”, participants will explore the nature of reality, themselves and the world plus the concepts of emptiness and impermanence and how they relate to the experience of suffering and freedom from suffering.
“We support you on your path of healing and wellness,” says Noel Coakley, a meditation teacher and psychotherapist who founded BCCP in 2017. The center, now located at 11 Kent Street in Brookline Village, is based on the intersection of meditation, yoga and psychology and remains a space without affiliation to any one particular tradition or path.
“As a collaborative of holistic professionals, practitioners and teachers, we meet a broad spectrum of hearts and minds. Within skillful relationships and a safe space, we provide support for the whole being—mind, body and spirit,” affirms Coakley. Beginners and experienced participants are invited to attend this and other BCCP events.
