You are welcome Ann,
 
    Sorry for not just replying to you, but I don’t know how to do that. Anyway, if anyone else is interested in Deep Springs Zen Center, I, being blind, would be happy to kick in for gas in exchange for transprotation. I haven’t made any groups and have only made it to the Zen Center twice, but found that it is VERY helpful in advancing meditation practice. Also, if anyone is in the Beaver County area, I would like to be more involved in the types of things that this list represents.
 
Thank you and peace to all,
 
Steve

Thank you, Steve.  I'll check out Deep Springs.  To those involved in the discussion here, let me add my perspective:  I think of myself as sensitive to marketing ploys and profit-driven "gurus," and in no way can David and his offerings be grouped among these.  The $20 he suggests really is a "donation."  There is a can, away from the meeting room and out of his sight, into which one MAY choose to place money.  He NEVER mentions it except in the Meetup description.  I am certain David would not deny participation to anyone based on finances; it's not his way.
Whether you find David's groups helpful or not is up to you.  But the correspondence between the two nay-sayers on this discussion site is off-base and distracting.  Take it outside, girls.

Hello Ann,
 
    I just wanted to recommend a website called A Winter Feast for the Soul. The event is happening now with many masters of various traditions offering new, daily meditations and instruction and posting them online. It is a 40 day transformation which allows anyone to develop and deepen a meditation practice. I am a daily meditation practitioner and hope this helps. BTW, you do know about Deep Springs Buddhist temple in Sewickly? They have meditation 2 to 3 times every day.

Hi David,
Good to hear from you.  I'm just not in PGH often enough to be regular about attendance at a group, but I'd like to meditate with others.  I'm more interested in practice and less in discussion--that is, I'd like to see less time given to talk than in our previous groups and more time given to practice.  I'd also like to learn more about Huna.  For the next couple of months, I can be in Pittsburgh more, because I'm getting chiropractic treatments in Oakmont three times a week (M_W_F.)  So if the groups happened one of those nights, I'd make a strong effort to attend. I am not interested in wealth accumulation or relationship practice.
I might be interested in a writing/creativity group.
Gotta run--on my way to Oakmont right now.  Will be in PGH tonight and available on my cell [masked]-0066.
Namaste'!
Anne

Hi all,

I'd like to pose some questions. Feel free to answer or trash this email. I am sending this email because there has been a precipitous drop off in participation in the weekly meditation/discussion group.

In 2012 I had the second of two near death experiences. I received healing for the incident in 2012 and am very grateful for that. I continue to learn and grow from this experience as I go deeper with it. So far it has led directly to a change in my relationship with money and I am currently on track to create success in a way that makes perfect sense and that I would never have anticipated. I continue to heal and my near death experience continues to yield benefits as it continues to open to various practices.

(First question) I am very happy to share these insights and welcome input that others bring so that we may all create together. Toward that end there are several possibilities for groups and classes. If you have an idea for a class or group, please let me know. I have hosted other groups in the past and would be happy to discuss doing so again. The possibilities include (in no particular order):

- meditation/discussion

- drumming circle/shamanic exploration

- nonviolent communication practice group

- Huna (and other) technique practice group

- wealth creation practice group

- relationship practice group

- creative exploration practice group

- classes in these things

(Second question) What day/evening would be good for you?

(Third question) In particular I am looking at the next two Thursdays as possibilities for kicking off a project that involves creative exploration. If you are interested in writing fiction or nonfiction, photography, meeting people and creating something together, etc., please check this out. If you are interested but can't make it during either night, please contact me.

 

Thanks for reading this far.

-David Park
