What we're about

This meetup is meant for anyone and everyone, all ages welcomed. We welcome learning on everything from natural and energetic healing, quantum physics, spirituality, and raising vibrations.

We will host meditations as well as discussion groups on how we can connect more easily with Universal energies. People from all religious backgrounds are welcome.

Our goal is to build a community for inquiry, self-discovery, support, and spiritual growth-- an unconditionally loving and supportive community for the people in and around Greenwich, CT to turn to throughout their journey.

If you feel called to engage in a leadership role as an Assistant Organizer, or Event Host (whether for a one-time event or a repeating, regular event), or to request cross-promotion of your similarly aligned event, please contact Marija, our group Organizer.

Meditation Circle

Montgomery Pinetum

Now that the weather is nicer, we will be returning to meeting outdoors at a small organic farm in Greenwich, which is currently a construction site. Due to construction, there will be very limited parking on site available. If you want to drop off a chair and then go park that would be fine.

No experience is necessary. All are welcome, whether it is your first time meditating, you have been teaching meditation to others for decades, or somewhere in between.

***DIRECTIONS***
We are meeting at a property adjoining the Montgomery Pinetum Park. There are two choices for parking.

Option 1: Park at the end of the culdesac at Montgomery Lane (off Stanwich Road) and follow the paved path to the meadow and turn left to get to the farm. 2-3 minute walk.

Option 2: Alternatively, if you would like a little longer walk, you can park in the parking lot of the Montgomery Pinetum Park (130 Bible Street
Cos Cob, CT 06807) and follow the paved path through the woods to the farm. 5-7 minute walk.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Due to the construction on site, please be aware there is uneven ground, various construction materials around, piles of rock and dirt which should be avoided. However, entering through the park as described above you will not be passing through the construction area.

We will be sitting on cut wooden logs or you may wish to bring a cushion or a folding chair, your preference. The logs are probably damp so bring something to sit on.

The positive energies from the meditation circle add to the high vibration of the farm and assist the plants to grow abundantly. The surrounding forested parkland makes a perfect backdrop for a relaxing experience connecting with nature and fellow journeying souls.

Most of our meditations are led by Marija, our group organizer, but any member of the circle is welcome to lead the meditation so that everyone can experience different styles and types of meditation, and so that those who are ready to practice as meditation leaders have an opportunity to lead the group. If you are interested in taking a turn leading the meditation circle, please let Marija know in advance.

Marija leads different styles of meditation, guided by her intuition as to what is most needed by those present each week. Some weeks are guided for the entire time with times of silence in between, some weeks there is guidance only at the beginning. While influenced by the works of Dr. Joe Dispenza and Dolores Cannon, Marija is responsive to the interests and experience of those present each week.

Marija is a farmer, dowser, spirit communicator, and energy healer. She has been leading group meditations for over two years mostly at her farm.

You can join us for yoga at 12:30 at the same location before the meditation, or come just for the meditation.

There is no charge for this event, but donations to cover the Meetup and Zoom fees, or to purchase drums for our drum circles, are gratefully accepted.

Wake up!! A Practical course in Buddhism

Online event

The cause for ALL of our discomforts, frustrations, difficulties, anxiety - our fundamental dissatisfaction - is ignorance; not understanding how things actually are. It’s anything but hopeless, however, we can all learn to see more clearly. And as we do, we experience less and less unhappiness.

This course is decidedly practical - what to actually do (and not do) and how to do it. The source is one of the most beloved Buddhist texts, ‘The Way of the Bodhisattva’ by Shantideva. He’s like the original life coach - showing us how to work with our real-world challenges, at a nuts and bolts level, to help us out of the mess(es) we find ourselves in. Our journey will take the form of a book club, following Pema Chodron’s accessible, down to earth commentary on Shantideva’s text, ‘No Time to Lose’.

It’s an apt title. There IS no time to lose. None of us is getting younger, and while many of us enjoy a relatively privileged life, it won’t last forever. So what are you waiting for? It is a truly transformational work, and I guarantee you will not remain uncharged. But if that’s not what you’re looking for ..., then never mind.

Just to be clear, there is nothing dull or somber about this stuff. In fact, it’s incredibly engaging, provocative, and yes, fun. So get a copy of the book and join us on this trip. You will be asked to make a voluntary contribution of whatever you feel the course is worth to you. I look forward to meeting you on zoom this coming Thursday at 7:00 PM.

And the good news is that Pema Chodron's book includes all the root verses from 'The Way of the Bodhisattva'. Here's the link to he Amazon entry for No Time to Waste.
