We offer sessions every Monday evening. Josh leads the Monday sessions on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. Diane leads the sessions on the 2nd Monday of each month (with a gentle yoga session beforehand, from 4:30-5:30, for those who wish to participate.) Heatherleigh leads the sessions on the 4th (and 5th) Mondays of each month.
Guided session from 6-6:30, and silent session from 7-7:30. We are a group of local folks of all ages, backgrounds and traditions who meet every Wednesday in downtown Ferndale for two sessions: a 1/2 hour guided meditation at 6:00, followed by a short break, and then a 1/2 hour silent, seated meditation at 7:00.
All are welcome, whether you are a beginner or advanced practitioner. Some people prefer to attend either the silent or the guided session, and some choose to participate in both sessions. We recommend arriving about 5-10 minutes before the session starts to find a seat and get comfortable. Both floor cushions and folding chairs are available, and you are welcome to bring your own cushion as well, if you prefer.
This is a non-religious, non-sectarian group that is purely interested in creating a safe and welcoming space where meditators from all backgrounds and experience levels can gather for the purpose of benefiting ourselves, each other, and the community as a whole.
$5 donation per person is suggested in order to cover the expenses associated with maintaining the meditation space, however, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. A donation bowl is located near the door at each session for those who are able to contribute. Your donation covers participation in both the guided and the silent session.
