Northwest Suburban Meditation Meetup

  • May 26, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

All teachers agree: The key to a successful meditation practice is a regular practice. Therefore this meetup is looking for practitioners who are willing to make a dedicated effort to sit together weekly in order to fully realize the benefits of group practice. All levels and schools of thought are welcome. Meet like minded people while expanding your own personal practice in a non-competitive and supportive environment. Feel free to join us for a sitting and experience increased self awareness and inner peace by way of your journey inward.

**NOTE - NEW TIME: In 2013 we will be returning to our original meeting time of 7:00pm so please arrive as close to 7:00pm as possible. We will begin our meditation at 7:15pm. This meetup should end by approximately 9:15pm.

**NOTE - NEW LOCATION: We are located at the intersection of Pfingsten & Maria  (northwest corner). That's between Dundee & Lake Cook across from Underwriters Laboratories. If you you need additional help, please contact me prior to the closing of RSVP's & I will provide you with my cell #.

FORMAT: We will begin with some basic yoga stretches followed by a short centering exercise, introductions and then some brief instruction before beginning our practice described as follows: We will sit in silence for two fifteen minute sessions focusing on our breath as the meditation object. There will be a short break between the sessions for new practitioners to pause and readjust themselves if need be. More experienced meditators may practice all the way through both sessions without pausing if they so choose. When we finish there will be time for questions, reflection and mingling for those who would like to participate.

FYI: Chairs will be available for those who prefer to use them. For those who choose to sit on the floor, blankets, cushions & floorchairs are available but feel free to bring your own, meditation bench, pillow, yoga mat or zafu cushion if you prefer.

COST: A voluntary donation of $1.00 to help cover expenses would be most appreciated but is by no means expected.

If you have any questions about this particular sitting or our meetup group in general, please feel free to contact me. I am looking forward to sitting in practice and sharing energy in the present moment with all who choose to attend. Namaste, Mark Z

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
