Eastside/Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sitting Group

  • Hollywood Forever 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90038 United States (map)

Experience the peace, stillness and power of mindfulness meditation in a community setting. Our practice shows us that everything in existence is constantly changing. The Buddha instructed his students to contemplate impermanence. Therefore, meditating in cemetery can be of great support to this practice, for it helps us to wake up to this life before it ends.

We will start with a 30-40 minute sitting meditation with guidance in the beginning, (sometimes) followed by 10-15min walking meditation. The teacher will then give a short talk. We will end with a period of discussion either about the talk or about your mindfulness practice.

We will be exploring the Four Foundations of Mindfulness as themes for these next four months:

February - Mindfulness of the body

March - Mindfulness of the heart

April - Mindfulness of feeling/mind

May - Mindfulness of hindrances and/or four noble truths
