The Fredericksburg Dharma Friends Meetup Group This group is for anyone interested in Buddhism. Fredericksburg and surrounding areas are home to several wonderful meditation groups and activities.  This meetup is designed to further nurture a sense of community “off the cushion.”

 

A Vipassana meditation session is held at the Recovery In Motion (R.I.M.) offices on Saturdays at noon. Guided meditation is available for those without Vipassana experience. The R.I.M. office is on the second floor of the Goodwill Community Resource Center at 4701 Market Street, Fredericksburg, VA 22408. Just walk into either of the Goodwill stores and go out the back door of the store. R.I.M. is on the second floor, in Suite C. For this practice, we sit in meditation for 20 minutes and then take turns sharing on our practice. Facilitated by Carolyn Pevey. (map)
