Now, wherever you are, you can join a simple centering Open Meditation practice every week.
Open Meditation is a practice in which we simply sit together in loving silence and explore the question “What is true for me now?” By doing so we allow and invite presence. We tap into our current experience, the sensations, feelings and thoughts that make up THIS moment, with friendly curiosity and acceptance.
I will guide the meditation lightly, allowing the group to cultivate a shared space of presence, self-awareness and conscious connection. We will close by sharing questions and our experiences. In this way, every meeting becomes a unique co-creation.
Group sessions celebrate an inward turn towards the fundamental dimension of being, alive in every one of us. No goal, no right way, nowhere to get and no method to get there. Simply being with what is, in present in conscious feeling and connection with self, others and all that is.
All are welcome, regardless of beliefs, history and experience with meditation.
