What we're about

This meetup focuses on meditation, everything is about the facts and truth of human mind. In each session, let's explore what is meditation together. When one knows what is meditation, one will know how to meditate, that is, also, how to live a life.

Mindful Amsterdam is a weekly event organized by Mindiverse to spread the facts about life and help people in some way understand themselves to resolve all kinds of confusion in life. The very way to understand the self is meditation, a journey where everyone has to turn inward.

Hello, everyone:

This group is about guided meditation and philosophy. if you are a newbie, you will learn the meditation techniques; if you are an adept meditator, you could join me and do the meditation together.

With proper philosophical thinking, we could cultivate some values via meditation to improve our well-being.

This group is open for everyone and open for any meditation tradition (there is no right or wrong meditation).

Free events are regularly organized for guided meditation, and everyone is welcome to join.

PS: I am Cico (https://hi-it.org), currently doing my PhD in Amsterdam. I am doing philosophy of human mind and computer science. I hope to help more people get on well with and benefit from mindfulness practice. If you are curious about my philosophical thought on mindfulness, you could check out https://mindful.mindiver.se

Recently, I got interviewed by an independent journalist for the mindfulness event. You can find this report here: https://www.advalvas.vu.nl/nieuws/phd-student-teaches-meditation-and-chinese-vu , which nicely summarized my viewpoints without any exaggeration.

Finally, I hope everyone has a wonderful day and enjoys the peace and calm from within.
