What Barbara (Fragrant Lotus S. is saying about this Meetup Group

Our group begins the meditation at 6:30pm. As an assistant organizer being a regular in this group, i was amazed that most of the assistants showed up early and they were already sitting in their cushions at 6:10pm. Everybody followed the instructions like old practitioners and we had a wonderful and mindful time together. i'm greatful to Adam, Mike, Lynn and others who helped me pick up the meditation hall. i am also greatful to Maddi's stories enriching my experience. To Patrick, John and all the new comers, please come back to continue enhancing our powerful energy of mindfulness. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, your time and your precious presence!
