Whether you are new to meditation or a veteran "sitter," please join us every Monday evening in Bellingham's Forum de Freedom as the CMU community gathers to practice mental stillness. Meditation unites mind, body and spirt, helping one tap into the deep state of relaxation, peace — and sometimes inspiration! — that exists within all of us.
Our Monday Night Meditation could not be more simple. We meet. We greet. We take a seat.
And we finish before 7p. :)
This is not a meditation class, but during the "greet" we can share meditation practices that may assist those new to meditation.
Our general practice is to meditate with the assistance of our beautiful Crystal Singing Bowl. (Similar to this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_xAmpNxkOE).) You can read about the benefits some have received from crystal bowl meditation here: http://elevatedlasvegas.com/benefits-healing-crystal-singing-bowls/
Please arrive by 5:55pm so we can begin promptly at 6. Doors will be locked shortly after our meditation begins to minimize disturbance to other sitters.
Drop-ins welcome. Bring your favorite meditation pillow (we do have a few first-come/first-serve loaners) or plan to use a chair. It all works. And it's all free. (Inspired love donations always gratefully accepted.)
Facilitated by CMU Director Mike Hiestand.

Some have found mindful cannabis use an aid to meditation, helping calm the "monkey mind" and ground oneself in the present moment. Unless otherwise noted, events sponsored by the Center for Mindful Use are “Canna-friendly,” that is that our instructors neither encourage nor discourage cannabis use, but encourage guests to show up as they are. Please note that the use of cannabis while on CMU property is not currently permitted by our lease.
