What we're about

Hello & Welcome!

MEDITATION - Rejuvenates the Body, illuminates the Mind, and helps us experience our Inner Essence or what is sometimes referred to as our True Self/Soul/Buddha-Nature/Inner Awareness.

But, there are so many positive benefits to meditation, and the intention for creating this group is to help people achieve these benefits for themselves, by creating a supportive, encouraging, and helpful community; not only for those already working their practice but also for those who are just beginning or interested in learning.

Those who have tried to meditate on their own often say it’s difficult, and in the beginning, sitting still and finding the time to meditate every day is challenging. But, the secret to sustaining a long-term practice is simpler than you think — it's GROUP MEDITATION.

Here are some reasons why:

1. OUR GROUP MEDITATION WILL PROVIDE AN ENCOURAGING ENVIRONMENT.

Many find that a group setting is a more encouraging environment because when practicing alone, it’s natural for every meditator to go through a phase where they think: “am I doing this right?" Unfortunately, this doubt can kill any attempts at building a long-term daily practice. But, in a group you’ll connect with like-minded people with whom you can talk about your practice, ask questions, and pick up tips and tricks, in order to help you achieve your goals.

In addition going to a group meditation, is kind of like going to a gym with a workout partner. If we go to the gym by ourselves we may not workout for the full time we intended or as intensely as if we went with a friend or partner. Well, the same goes for mediating. If we meditate at home alone we might not sit for the full time we intended, but in a meditation group, we feel committed to sit for the full-time as we won't want to disturb or look like we are slacking in front of the others. :-)

2. OUR GROUP MEDITATION GIVES US A SPECIFIC TIME AND PLACE TO MEDITATE.

One of the biggest issues facing the meditators I work with is that they struggle to keep a specific place and time to meditate. Putting this group together defines the place and time in advance. This can be very helpful in building our practice because the distractions from our home won’t be there.

3. OUR GROUP MEDITATION WILL HELP US TO RELAX MORE QUICKLY.

When meditators come together they form “group energy”. And many meditators say that this group energy helps their minds quickly calm down and allows their meditations to become deeper and more fulfilling.

All our Meetup Meditation Events are always open to EVERYONE!

Whether you’ve been practicing for years; are a new beginner; or someone just curious about meditation – please come by & join us!

In addition to group sessions (which as listed below), we have many MEDITATION CLASSES, EVENTS, WORKSHOPS, & RETREATS throughout the year! Therefore, please check our CALENDAR often.

LET'S GET MEDITATING!! And let's help one another on the path to health, happiness, peace, & enlightenment.

I look forward to meeting and meditating with all of you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

GOOD VIBRATIONS: Sound Bath Meditation (Vero Beach)

Aquarian Dreams

A "Sound Bath Meditation" can be very therapeutic because you’re literally bathed in sound waves. As these sound waves wash over your body they can take you into a theta brainwave state which leads to deep relaxation and healing. Basically, the sound vibrations help to shift your brain into a more relaxed state, and make it easier to experience a deeper meditation. This type of meditation is wonderful for all types of meditators. But, especially for beginners because if you’ve ever attempted to meditate, you’ll know that the second you try not to think about stuff, is when your brain decides to mentally write a grocery list & think about EVERYTHING! LOL! However, in a Sound Bath Meditation the mind has something to hold onto. The sound of the bowls, instruments, gongs, etc... helps the mental chatter quiets down quite a bit. So, come join us and let the sounds of Himalayan and Crystal Bowls wash away your stress and fill you with an inner peace and joy! This is a time to be silent, lay on the floor or sit in a comfortable position and let the vibration and sounds flow through you, breaking loose those tight energy blocks in the body and releasing that which no longer serves you' This is sure to leave your body/mind/spirit feeling renewed and rejuvenated. Hope to see you there! COST - $20
