What we're about

Founded by Dean and Maggy Sluyter, our Natural Meditation sangha is devoted to nondual, contemplative approaches of Buddhist and Advaita teachings. We focus on directly experiencing the awareness and peace always present – even in the midst of seeming chaos and uncontrolled thoughts. Our intention is to take the fruits of this direct experience “off the meditation cushion” and into our everyday lives. New Jersey towns served by Natural Meditation of NJ include Roselle Park, Scotch Plains, Cranford, Clark, Westfield, Rahway, Fanwood, and Plainfield.

Online meditation with Dean Sluyter

Online via Zoom

A new weekly meditation series -- conducted online via Zoom -- with the co-founder of our sangha, Dean Sluyter. Dean has led hundreds of meditation workshops and is the author of Natural Meditation, Fear Less, The Zen Commandments, Cinema Nirvana, and other books. To learn more and view past sessions, visit his YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/DeanPritamSluyter) or contact him at [masked]. Here is Dean's description of the meditation ... Well, well ... interesting times . This new environment of uncertainty and disruption has obviously compelled us all to find new ways of running our lives, of being peaceful and sane, and of making life as good as we can for ourselves and others. Hundreds of you who are reading this have practiced natural meditation with me, and you've experienced that there's a place within us of simple beingness, of infinite OK-ness, of ahhhhhhh. That place is always there and always available, no matter what . That's easy to forget at times like this, when it's most important to remember. I hope you'll join with me and with friends near and far to connect with each other and with that place of ahhhhhhh.
