Full Moon Meditation :Bliss Out on the Lake!

This is our first 'official' outdoor meditation this year. We had an unexpected one a few moons ago, but that doesn't count as a 'proper' session. This time we will be prepared for the elements!

Bring your blankets, pillows or chairs to sit on and wear layers! We will be sitting either on the bandstand platform itself or just out front of it on the grass depending on what all is happening out there.

Notice that we are starting 30 minutes earlier at 6.30PM so do come on time!

I am excited to be hosting this outdoors under the Full Moon, the moon is at its peak at 8:30pm so we will be there at the fullest moment!

Come with your prayers, your clear intentions and an open heart.

Looking forward to sharing this with you!

...

As always, these events are supported by your gracious donations, a box will passed around. $10 - $20 is requested but no one is turned away for lack of funds. Give as you are willing and able.

      I just want to say you are considerate. I am driving on Shuttock in Berkeley and wouldn't have minded. Ralph

      Ah! Well, I ended up in Willard Park watching the moon rise. It was absolutely bright and beautiful!

    The positive energy flowed from the circle to across the park. It was a perfect combination. A long meditation guided by Amelia's soothing voice, with the added vibration of the drum. And the dancing, that warmed us up.

    Anyone driving through or from Berkeley/Elmwood and would like to carpool? I don't want to lose my parking place in the neighborhood :(

    Hi Cherie, This Bandstand is very close to the parking lot (within eyesight). We will make sure everyone gets to their car safely. At 6.30pm it is still quite bright. Play it by ear, I surely want you to feel safe! Hi Francis, tonight is a different story, this outdoor meditation is for the Full Moon on the 24th. :) Good luck with the interview, sounds exciting. Keep me posted!

    I have a 2nd job interview in Canoga Park near LA tomorrow 9 AM. Need to prep for a 6:30 AM flight. Today is my 10.5-hour day at work. Tight squeeze in timing. Things are developing rapidly. Enjoy the balmy outdoor meditation tonight! Blessings to all!

    I'm having second thoughts -- I'm not all that crazy about meditating in unprotected outdoor spaces that are not high traffic locations. (And then, if they are high traffic locations, I'm not happy with that either -- enjoy my privacy, especially when meditating.) I'm an inner city kid, and have lived in Oakland for 1 year shy of 30, and just don't like to willingly put myself in a "duh -- I knew better" space. Bandstand's okay on a sunny day with tons of people walking around. At nightfall? My experience is that the area changes around 8:30. Group of positive meditators would probably be okay, but after dispersing, iffy. So if I bring that negative energy, that won't be good for the group. I'll wait until another indoor gathering. Don't know if this is totally my street smarts talking. Am going back to reading Trungpa (Smile at Fear) to see what presents.

    Thanks for all your positive energy!
