We finished the eight week meditation workshop on "purposeful attention" under the auspices of the Bancroft Family Health Team. It was well attended throughout. It was a great group of people who seemed to enjoy the Powerpoint presentations that I did for the first time for the workshop. There was much laughter, and I hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did. I plan to do anther workshop in the fall. It will have a different theme, but we will cover the basics of mediation as we always do.
This blog chronicles the activities of a meditation group in Bancroft, Ontario and provides instruction in insight meditation. Meditation concepts are explained in terms of Western psychology and in terms of the Buddhist concepts from which this style of meditation derives. Dr. Alan McAllister, a psychologist practicing in Bancroft, is the author of the blog and the facilitator of the group which meets periodically for 8-10 sessions twice a year.
