Due to the ongoing threat of Zoom bombers disrupting meditations and meetings, this list intentionally asks that you reach out to individuals rather than providing open/standing links. Thank you for your understanding.
Insight Meditation Community of Pittsburgh meets on Mondays at 7pm via zoom. Anyone who is interested should please contact Steven Bend at email@example.com for more details and emails to the weekly links, or visit the parent-organization’s website at www.imcw.org.
Rhonda Rosen leads an open meditation group on Wednesday evenings 6-7:30 with a Vipassana / Insight meditation style of practice. Please email Rhonda at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in receiving these invitations.
Every other Thursday, Dr. Carol Greco leads a meditation evening. It is primarily attended by previous Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) participants but is open for others to join. 6:30-7:30pm ET is guided meditations, and 7:30-8pm ET is an optional discussion time. Write to email@example.com if you want to be on this email list for a monthly reminder.
