What we're about

This is a Nashville local meditation group focused on silent meditation sitting sessions. Our members can offer up spaces and times to host a group silent meditation sits, and any member can come and join in the sits.

We expect that meditators have a practice of silent meditation already and are comfortable sitting quietly for some time.

We don't care which tradition you practice in, just that you are interested in joining us for silent group meditation sits.

Historically, this group was started as a "Vipassana" meditation group, but we found that our group sits were bringing in meditators from many traditions (Vipassana, Zen, Shambala, etc.), and just sitting quietly together worked great.

But, no one should feel obligated to stay online. **Etiquette** We want to approximate as much as possible the experience of our in-person sits: a dedicated time to meditate together silently. - Share your video of you meditating if you feel comfortable. - If your space is quiet you can feel free to share audio, but if it is noisy, please mute. If in doubt -- mute! - If you come in late, feel free to join us, but do so silently. - The host will run a timer which rings bells at the begining and end of the sit. - Please RSVP if you are coming. - Any silent sitting meditation practice is welcome! **Joining the sit** We try to make the sit as accessible as possible, but meditators will need either a computer, ipad (or similar), smartphone to connect to the video stream. It is also possible to dial in via a regular phone call. We are using Jitsi Meet to run the sits. If you're using a modern web browser you can just go to the meeting link.
