Welcome Meditators of All Schools & Experience Levels!

The purpose of this group is, as the Buddha said, to seek out "wise & beneficial friends" who support us and our Meditation practice. Namely we are looking for a group of beginning & advanced students, and anyone interested who is willing to learn, to motivate each other by coming to (and becoming a regular part of) a weekly sitting meditation group.

All teachers agree: The key to a successful meditation practice is a regular practice; and therefore this group is looking for people who realize the benefits of meditating together and who want to make a dedicated effort to sustain a once-weekly meetup for sitting meditation (with instruction, as needed).  Most weeks, a reading with brief discussion & mingling follows.

This group is open to all schools of thought and meditation formats, and also for anyone willing to co-organize or suggest events. The development of Wisdom through regular meditation practice can lead to a decrease of "suffering" as well as an increase in Inner Peace and Compassion for oneself & others. Please join us, you are most welcome.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
