If you're interested in learning meditation techniques, in deepening your practice, and/or in meeting like-minded practitioners, then please join us on Monday nights, from 7:30-8:30pm at the Taoist Chee Chung Center in West L.A. for a free weekly guided meditation and spiritual discussion group. We will be meditating throughout the class and taking a break to discuss relevant spiritual matters.

This is a NON-RELIGIOUS discussion and meditation group, focusing on the basic principles of universal oneness, balance, and energy. Meditation will be of the Zen Buddhist and Taoist traditions. Discussions will focus on practical topics of living a spiritual life while in every day society.

Classes are free, with the option of donation for the center, so please feel free to invite whomever you think may benefit.

    I appreciate this low key and grounded guidance in meditation.
    The concept of the eternal "One" that is all-inclusive is particularly meaningful for me right now. It does help take some of the sting out of the loss of loving relationships we may have with people and animals. I liked the balance as presented. So often attachments are mistakenly viewed as things only to avoid. But what would our lives be like without healthy attachments to those we love?

      I agree. We MUST love and care deeply for the people in our lives if we're to fully experience being human. The distinction, however, between deeply caring and spiritual attachment lies in the sense of co-mingling our very identity or essence with those people or things. If we can love and even feel deep sadness during loss, and yet simultaneously hold to an awareness of our whole and complete self within--that the loss does not constitute a loss of my very essence--then we are practicing non-attachment. This is a difficult, seemingly paradoxical concept across eastern spiritual philosophies, but the practice of it brings a deep sense of wholeness and the ability to love even deeper...for how much more would you be willing to love and risk being sad if you knew that the loss of that which you love would not mean the loss of your self?

    Very therapeutic and enlightening. The topic today was quite thought provoking and I enjoyed hearing others take on the subject.

    It was a wonderful mind exercise, something I have been neglecting. I look forward to working further with this group.
