Chanting and meditation with a relaxed and supportive group. $2 donation welcomed but not required. Some folks join us without registering on MeetUp.com. Sometimes when there are folks new to meditation we do a brief basic teaching at 5:30pm, call me at[masked] if you'd like to come early for the teaching.
Come Relax and Meditate with Us! 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 Tamaji, are also there to encourage and assist us. They also offer instruction to beginners, so they can comfortably explore the field for themselves, 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. There is never any charge.
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.
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 before Meetup began, so we already have about 50 active members in Westchester, a dozen or so of whom show up at any individual meeting.
Exploratory visits and inquiries more than welcome! Merrill's wife, Tamaji is the contact person for questions and for confirming the time and place of meetings. She's usually home. Call her anytime, perhaps just to get acquainted. Her number: 914-946-5334. .
