We are an open, friendly, non-sectarian, non-stuffy group of people who meditate together -- and support one another.
When it comes to moving along on the spiritual path, it's not easy to go it alone. We all need support. And our warm group energy gives lots of that support.
Our teachers, Merrill and Mataji, are there to encourage and assist us. They also offer instruction to beginners, so they can comfortably explore the field for themselves, to see if meditation enhances their lives as much as it does ours.
As for instruction, our meditation teachings are simple and practical. We start beginners by showing them how easy it is to relax profoundly, rather than merely relaxing temporarily or superficially. For those who want more, then, we provide personalized meditation tools that deepen and expand inner peace and, ultimately, lead in the direction of complete Self-realization. What could be bad about that?
Anyone is invited to visit one of our support group meetings.
When? We have a meeting every Wednesday evening at 7:30 and every Saturday afternoon at 2 pm -- except for the first Saturday of the month. On the first Saturday we meet at 5 pm and most of us stay on for a potluck.
Members can come to any or all of those meetings -- no advance notice is necessary. Did I mention we were accepting? Click on "Photos" in the left sidebar to see some scenes of us.
There are no fees but we would appreciate a donation of $2 for our expenses.
Our group includes people of all faiths -- and no faith. We are flexible, informal and, not infrequently, just plain silly. We've been meeting for some time now and many members attend meetings without bothering to RSVP. So don't assume the RSVP number shows how many people you can expect to see at a meeting. Almost every meeting has twenty or more participants.
Exploratory visits and inquiries more than welcome! Feel free to call anytime with your questions or just to say hello. Merrill or Mataji are usually home: 914-946-5334.
