Insight meditation cultivates our natural wisdom and compassion. Meditation practice develops concentration, which allows us to calm and steady the mind. This class includes 1/2 hour of Vipassana meditation instruction and guided meditation followed by an hour-long dharma talk. This is a large gathering of approximately 250-300 people.

No registration is necessary. Classes are offered freely; there will be an opportunity to offer dana (a donation) at class to support the venue and teacher.

Copies of Oren’s book will be for sale and an optional book signing will follow the event.

About the Book

Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication is a step-by-step guide for meaningful conversations that bring people together. It is the first book to integrate mindfulness with the modern discipline of Nonviolent Communication and somatic healing.

Whether it's managing conflict at work, navigating a political divide with a relative, or strengthening bonds at home—communicating effectively is what makes or breaks our relationships. Rich with simple yet powerful exercises, Say What You Mean offers a clear method and concrete practices for healthier, more effective conversation.
