We are a group of local people of all ages, backgrounds and traditions who meet every Wednesday in downtown Ferndale for two sessions: a 1/2 hour guided meditation at 6:00, followed by a short break, and then a 1/2 hour silent, seated meditation at 7:00. All are welcome, whether you are a beginner or advanced practitioner.
Some people prefer to attend either the silent or the guided session, and some choose to participate in both sessions. We recommend arriving about 10-15 minutes before the session starts to find a seat and get comfortable. Both floor cushions and folding chairs are available, and you are welcome to bring your own cushion as well, if you prefer.
This is a non-religious, non-sectarian group that is purely interested in creating a safe and welcoming space where meditators from all backgrounds and experience levels can gather for the purpose of benefiting ourselves, each other, and the community as a whole.
A $5 donation per person is suggested in order to cover the expenses associated with maintaining the meditation space, however, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. A donation bowl is located near the door at each session for those who are able to contribute. Your donation covers participation in both the guided and the silent session.
