What we're about

Starting November 17th 2017 the name of the group was changed from Meditation in Lagrange to Awakening Realized. The new name reflects what the group is about and what we hope you get from joining the group e.g. that you realize Awakening.

Will we still meditate? Yes, meditation is the core practice that the group was founded with and remains a core practice. We will still meditate for about an hour at each meetup.

What else do you do besides meditation? We practice other techniques that have been shown to help people Awaken.

What if I am not interested in Awakening but simply want to learn how to meditate and reduce stress, can I still attend? Awakening can be thought of as the highest state free of stress. So stress reduction is still in line with the "lofty" goal of Awakening. So yes, you are more than welcome to attend and take and use what you find beneficial for your life. After you reduce your stress, you may find that you want to eliminate it completely.

There is a wealth of information under the Discussions tab or if you are on your phone go to More > Message Boards.

Like the little stream
Making its way
Through the mossy crevices
I, too, quietly
Turn clear and transparent. - Taigu Ryokan

Awareness

Location visible to members

Tonight we will be doing a fun group exercise that involves placing attention on and describing awareness. We will still meditate for 50-60 minutes. Zoom meeting link https://zoom.us/j/946929599 Some quotes from Wei Wu Wei to whet your appetite and set the table... "A man who is seeking for realisation is not only going round searching for his spectacles without realising that they are on his nose all the time, but also were he not actually looking through them he would not be able to see what he is looking for!" "Are you still thinking, looking, living, as from an imaginary phenomenal centre? As long as you do that you can never recognise your freedom." "We are required to cease looking at objects as events apart from ourselves, And to know them at their source - which is our perceiving of them." -- Fee: Free
