========== DETAILS ===========
We are going to have another "Eckhart Tolle / Power of Now" Meetup on the weekend in the "North Atlanta" area. The meetup will be in the middle of January on Sunday, Jan 19 at 1:00 pm. This matches our normal weekend schedule which is the third Sun of every month.
FYI, Russell -- an organizer of this meetup -- is also hosting weekend "Eckhart Tolle" meetups (now at Sevananda) every couple weeks in the "Central Atlanta" area; so feel free to attend the "North" or "Central" meetup; whichever one is more convenient for you.
Note that this meetup is free, and good for the soul!
As I've said before, the group has been constructed in such a way that you may join at anytime, for any length of time. No prior reading or experience is required, and all faiths/religions/viewpoints are welcome, as long as everyone is treated with respect.
Although our focus is on "Eckhart Tolle / Power of Now / A New Earth", the spiritual teaching therein is not exclusive to any particular faith/religion/group, and one can begin to grasp the essence without any prior intellectual knowledge.
My goal is to also allow people to share their own spiritual experiences with the group in a non-judgmental atmosphere. Everyone's spiritual experience is different, and that's ok.

Here is my address again:

My house is only 1 mile from exit 13 off of 400. Usually, we have a consistent turnout of about four to six people at my house.
As a member of Tolle's website I have access to his newest answers/discussions, and I download them each month to share with the group. Also, there is a YouTube channel for Eckhart Tolle that we can look at as well. So, we'll watch some of Eckhart's latest video clips and have some short discussion -- mixed with a couple brief (30 secs or so) moments of "inner stillness/spaciousness". The rough-schedule of the meetup will be as follows:
1:00 PM : Introductions (Please try to be on time so we can start the 10-minute stillness/meditation promptly at 1:05 PM). It's fine if you do need to show up late, just come right in (quietly) as I will leave my door unlocked.
1:05 - 1:15 PM: Inner Stillness / Silent Meditation
1:15 - 2:20 PM: Discussion and listening to Tolle. Goal is to understand and deepen knowledge of ego, watching the thinker etc. and continuing to learn how to apply the knowledge of the book(s) to daily practical life.
2:20 - 2:30 PM: Silent Meditation, or at least a brief moment of inner stillness to end the meetup
Feel free to call, text, or e-mail me if you have any questions about the meetup.
Here's to another enjoyable Now with you all.
