What we're about
We changed our name from Buddhist Mindfulness and Meditation to Waking Up Community in NE Portland! Our new name reflects the nature of our gatherings where we meditate and explore Buddhist concepts from a variety of sources. We are a spiritual circle within Leaven Community and average 10-20 people a week. Most regulars do not RSVP here.
Join us Saturday mornings from 9:00 to 10:30am. No prior meditation experience needed, just come as you are and be prepared to learn something new about yourself! Meditation sessions last 50 minutes and include opportunity for sitting, walking/movement. A group discussion follows on a topic introduced by the week's discussion leader. Afterwards we enjoy refreshments and casual conversations as we get to know one another and deepen relationships.
By coming together each week we strengthen our mindfulness practice, enjoy community, and develop a more mindful outlook with which to live and act in our interconnected world.
