Dedicated Practioners' Group

Our Dedicated Practioners' Group

 

Sit, stretch and share with a group of dedicated practitioners who want to connect deeply with themselves and others. 

Structure of the group: 45 minutes of practice after which there will be time for processing and sharing in dyads and then with the entire group. We will explore mindfulness, loving-kindness and equanimity practices.  This dedicated practice group will include two Days of Mindfulness (day-long retreats).  The first retreat will be held on October 28th and second on May 5th! 

     

    The support of shared meditation can deepen practice and open to the fullness of your experience. Group meditation has some unique benefits.  Here are six reasons to consider joining us.

    1. Everything is better when shared—including meditation.
    2. Meditating with a group helps to develop a habit.
    3. Feedback is available.
    4. Joining a group is actually physically good for us.
    5. Be a part of the bigger picture.
    6. There is power in numbers.

    We found this wonderful list about the benefits of group meditation in an article by Kathryn Remati.  Read the full article here.

    Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better. It’s about befriending who we already are.
