Westchester Buddhist Center (WBC) is a community of students and teachers interested in mindfulness-awareness meditation and the Buddhist path. We welcome new students from any and all backgrounds to our regular weekly gatherings, whether they are just curious about meditation or are already well-versed in Buddhism.
Below you will find:
Concise Meditation Instruction for Shamatha Practice
An article on the practice by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
A sequence of three recordings of detailed instruction given at our Center
Detailed instructions on the same practice from Meditation in Action
A link to guidance on the contemplative practice of The Four Immeasurables
Our Practice - Meditation Instruction
Learn to Meditate: WBC Basic Meditation Instruction
These are recordings of live presentations. They are meant to serve as a refresher primarily for those that attended one of these sessions, or for those that are too far away to attend one. Since they are live, they are a bit rough and also include periods of silence when folks are actually meditating.
We hope that you find them helpful!
