We meditate! Our group is called Middle Way Meditation Center- Bethlehem

We are a group of meditators of varying experience that come together for meditation every week.  Our group is open to all, no matter what level of experience.  It is our experience, that sitting together in meditation creates a powerful, shared experience of calm abiding. It is our experience that the wisdom of the whole is greater than the individual, so we come together to meditate and support each other in meditation, in cultivating mindfulness, awareness and learning.  It is our belief that as we become more peaceful within our lives and ourselves, we extend peace and healing in the world.

The format of our group is Buddhist and is mostly facilitated by Venerable Great Song of the Heart, a Buddhist Priest in the Dhyana tradition (from Vietnam which is Zen, Chu'an, Son, Thien in other cultures).  Regular service format includes incense offering, dedication of merit, chanting Om..., a 20 minute meditation sit, a 10 minute walking meditation, another 20 minute meditation sit, followed by a brief teaching (dharma talk), sharing and closing. Most members feel greatly benefited by a regular practice, supported by the group (Sangha). Full service the first Monday of the month.

If you are a new meditator or want instructions/guidance, please arrive at least 15 minutes early.

We begin at 7:00 pm on Monday's.

In accordance with the Dharma service is free.  Donations are encouraged to support the group and the meditation site.

    Beth, I'm sorry but I have to change my RSVP to 'no'. I've been sick and I'm not quite feeling up to it, let alone I don't want to get anyone else sick. I'll have to see everyone again in a few more weeks!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
