How Does Halloween Relate To Your Meditation Practice?
with Pat Coffey

The celebration of Halloween here in the US is a far cry from it's original intent and origins.  Today's general commercialism and goofiness masks what can be a reflective and growthful time of the year.

Celebrated near the autumnal equinox, Halloween is rife with meaning.  For a meditation practitioner the day offers a stimulus for exploring the great mystery of life and death. 

Traditionally the customs of Halloween attempt to bring comfort and safety from our fear of death and all the tensions around an ever changing creation of which we have little or no control.

The Buddha offered us simple practices to work with these fears. They are clear, simple, profound and without superstitious mumbo jumbo.

Join us tonight to explore Halloween in it's deepest of meaning and learn how the Buddha's teachings can lead you from fear and anxiety to simplicity, ease, joy and peace. 

IMCC meets every Tuesday evening for a period of guided meditation and a talk by one of IMCC's experienced meditation teachers. The program is designed to be user-friendly and of interest to people with no meditation experience as well as more advanced practitioners.
