Mudita Mindfulness Community

Our Intentions

Mudita is a secular and nonsectarian mindfulness community open to everyone! Our name comes from the word mudita in Pali, which means sympathetic joy -- the joy we feel for the good fortune and happiness of others. This is exactly what we do - we come together once a week to learn and practice mindfulness, and to rejoice in each other's progress.🤗

Our intentions are:
1. learn & practice mindfulness together,
2. share and learn from each other,
3. support each other in our continued mindfulness practices.

Who Can Join

  • Mudita is a multicultural and non-sectarian community, open to everyone from all walks of life and all identities of nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, culture, age, physical ability and mental ability. Multicultural & Mindful Dialogue Guidelines are taught and reminded at every meeting.
  • No prior mindfulness experience is needed. I work with newcomers to guide them and answer their questions during meetings.
  • A sufficient level of English is needed as the meetings are held in English.

Meeting Format

Our meetings usually alternate between long meditations and learning new practices. A typical meeting might look like:

  • Arrival & grounding meditation (10 min)
  • Check in on how practice has been going (15 min)
  • Short teaching (20 min)
  • Meditation, practice of concepts, sharing (30 min)
  • Check out (10 min)

Guest Teachers

Our community occasionally welcomes guest teachers.

On Wednesday Aug 14th, our community welcomed Sasha Nelson as a guest teacher! Sasha is a fellow mindfulness teacher from our mindfulness teacher training with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach. Aside from being a mindfulness teacher, she is a vinyasa yoga teacher, a wellness consultant and writer, a dancer, and a food and sustainability enthusiast. She will talk to us about sustainability of mind, body & planet -- how to integrate simple yet profound mindfulness practices into every day life. Her talk will be followed by a meditation practice led by her. Our meeting, as always, will open with a check-in on how your practice has been going. 😊
