"Four Immeasurable Meditations" is the title of a talk to be given at the Emerald Coast Meditation Society Oct. 6 by Kabe Woods, facilitator of the Mindfulness Practice Center of Fort Walton Beach. The free meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. with a 30-minute meditation at Christ the King Episcopal Church, 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, Santa Rosa Beach, one-half mile north of Hwy. 98. The ECMS is ecumenical and does not follow any religion. In our world with too many "things to do," sleepless nights and angry moments, says Woods, “wouldn't it be nice to have a place of refuge where love and compassion are the norm and not the exception?” In his talk Woods says he will share the Buddhist practice of the “Four Immeasurable Meditations” that develop our consciousness and the consciousness of our community to live in peace and love. A retired senior executive with past leadership roles at AT&T Bell Labs, Lucent and ADVO Inc., Woods started his meditation practice in 1978. Since 1994 he has practiced in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, who ordained him into the "Order of Interbeing" in September 2013. He is a member of the Magnolia Grove Mindfulness Practice Center & Monastery community in Batesville, Miss. He is also a member of Unity Church in Ft. Walton Beach where he is a prayer chaplain trainer, teaching centering prayer and meditation. The Mindfulness Practice Center of Fort Walton Beach was established in June 2013. It is open for meditation practice six days a week. The ECMS meets on the first and third Thursday of every month except July and August. Anyone who needs meditation instruction should arrive by 6:15 p.m. For information contact Nancy James, firstname.lastname@example.org.
