The primary goal of this group is to look at starting a mediation/mindfulness group in the Longmeadow, MA area (Longmeadow/Forest Park area/East Longmeadow/Enfield). We are discussing possible spaces and times, and would love to hear from anyone with ideas or tips on other groups.
Our focus would be on practice, and this group would be a good match for people looking for a group to support their practice in a group setting.
As a starting point I'm looking at Tara Brach's advice for starting a mindfulness meditation group:
Join us for a short meeting and group meditation on Sunday, Nov 3. After brief introductions, we will sit together for a 20 minute silent meditation followed by an opportunity to discuss our practice goals and hopes for a regular group practice. We will conclude with another 20 minute silent meditation.
Location: Private home near Longmeadow/Springfield town line. Message Gi for location and directions. Chairs will be available but bring a cushion if desired.
