Please note I've changed the location for this meeting! We will be doing this at my new home.

>>>>> DIRECTIONS: PLEASE READ - Apple maps has no idea where my house is, and Google is not much better. I am in Northwest Austin near the Lakeline Mall area. Use these directions: Take 183 to Avery Ranch Blvd. Head East on Avery and turn right into the Glenfield entrance just after the water tower. Then take the first left on Loleta Way. The house is on the left. If you want to take Parmer lane instead, Avery Ranch blvd crosses Parmer about a mile north of 45. From Parmer, head west on Avery Ranch blvd, make a u-turn at the 183 intersection, and make the first right into Glenfield just after the water tower. Use caution coming in and out of the Glenfield entrance as it is on a curve and is hard to see either way. For parking, the house to the left of mine is still under construction, so unless you want a drywall screw in your tire I would not park in front of that house. There's lots of parking along the street to the right. Please do not park in the driveway.
Agenda: I'll choose one or two meditation tracks from the Monroe Institute that we haven't done in a while.
A few reminders:
PLEASE try to arrive a few minutes early to get yourself settled, say hi, and make sure your headphones are connected and working. We will likely start the meditation at 7:45 and lock the front door so we are not disturbed, so if you do not arrive by then you may miss the session.
Bring your headphones. I will have a few spares but not enough for everyone. If you have extra headphones and don't mind sharing please bring them along as some folks are bound to forget. I highly recommend closed ear and ideally noise-cancelling headphones.
You may want to bring your own blankets and pillows. I have 6 zero-gravity chairs for folks to use, but some people like to listen to the guided audio meditation exercises while lying down. I do not have enough mats or blankets or pillows so you may want to bring your own.
Bring a notebook and something to write with to record your experiences.
There's a good possibility with a group this size that this meeting will run a bit past the scheduled end time, as we want to give everyone a chance to share and participate in discussions. If you have to leave early I understand. Also note that sharing is completely optional and voluntary.
There is no charge for this meeting, but donations are greatly appreciated as it will help cover my costs not only for the room but for the audio equipment and extra cables I needed to purchase for our group. Suggested donations are $5-$10.
Most importantly, be ready to learn a lot about TMI and have some fun!
Looking forward to seeing you all!
