Hello! My name is Holly, and I am relatively new in Huntington Beach. So glad you have dropped in to check out this Meetup! Thank you.
The purpose of this Meetup is to offer a space for your meditation to be supported and to build community. If you are a beginner, I will be offering proven practices for you to use. If you are already an established practitioner, my intention is that you are supported to deepen your meditation.
Since 1985 I have been practicing meditation. For years, I was the co-owner, yoga teacher & wellness consultant in residence at The Light Within, a Wellness Emporium in North Carolina, where I taught systematic courses to help my clients and students gain knowledge of the ways of meditation and how to do it. Many were served! I loved my time there! Hurricanes and floods, like New Orleans ended that. A new life has emerged for me.
Today, my whole theme is expanded! We could call what I'm up to now Light Unlimited! The essence of this has been revealed to me as "WeThePeopleTravel.com" -- and my declaration is one of Interdependence! thus, more than ever, I know we need each other. I need you, actually, to be my local community. Most of my friends live elsewhere. But I'm here now. I would so love to meet you and am creating a welcoming space for you where your needs can be met as well.
Our American forefathers wrote a Declaration of Independence. My great,great,great,etc. Grandfather was a signer on the Constitution. Other ancestors were also progressive for the greater good to be realized. It seems my heritage is a lineage of visionaries. In December, 2011, it was revealed meditatively to me that I am here to live a new declaration: a Declaration of Inter-Dependence. "We The People", as an idea, was given to me in this meditation. In fact, what I saw/felt/heard was "We The People TRAVEL. In 1992 I went to India to study and stayed 3/4 of a year -- this came from a vision I had while meditaively "travelling."
I had never even thought of going to India, but through meditation, when this opened up for me, when i had a vision that was so clear, when I "saw" around the world, the power of that inner "travel" gave me the clarity and faith to take the steps to put the whole thing into action. This changed my life! And, the lives of many others have been touched because of it.
What I want to share with YOU, invite YOU to participate in, is that together we create a practice space where everyone/anyone can enjoy journeys of the mind and spirit. I know meditation is way to TRAVEL, to JOURNEY more deeply into ourselves.
It's clear to me that there is a update called for around the verbage of the brilliant document that our forefathers drafted regarding our inalienable rights to life and liberty. Now we need the shift from the "pursuit" of happiness into a greater Truth. Walt Whitman said "there has never been any more inception that there is now." Whatever it is that is going on, it's happening NOW. Meditation is ways to REALIZE this. Therefore, the REALIZATION of happiness, which is right here, right now, is available for us. Through meditation, this can be known and experienced.
As we know and experience this, we become free of projections that we must "go somewhere" or "get something" to enjoy feelings of happiness. In meditation, feelings of separation melt away. We become aware of our Oneness, our connectedness -- our interdependence. As all of this is generously being given to me by Life, I am so aware that I want to share it! Need to share it! Would you like to play? Please come on over. I'll have the tea on! and the coffee, too, if you like that. Fresh good-quality water always, too, of course.
Now, noticing I'm ready for more community locally and have many gifts to share, since I love to meditate and teach same, it has dawned on me that sharing my meditative experience and expertise will give me a gift I truly want -- to connect locally and be of service! My desire is that you will realize a gift you really want too: to learn how to meditate and/or deepen the practice you already have + enjoy the community we create together.
In it's beginning stages-- which is where we are now -- this group will meet two times a week in the morning. Tuesdays and Thursdays. There is no charge for attending. There will be a love offering basket. After the meditation, we can socialize a bit and get to know each other as you may so desire. My apartment is a welcome space. Much peace is already here and it'a good place to meditate.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your consciousness and caring to give yourself the gift of meditation. I feel what you do in this way is a gift to us all. 760/613-8778
