What we're about
The New England Meditation Center is a place to learn how to meditate. We offer meditation sessions, classes, and retreats for all levels of meditators. We are non-denominational, non-political, and welcome students from all traditions, cultures, religions, and beliefs. What we teach and practice has nothing to do with beliefs or traditions; instead, we study and practice the universal, fact-based, scientific method of activating and expanding the consciousness.
All of our activities are donation-based and tax-deductible. There are no fees, dues, subscriptions, memberships, "masters," anyone to follow, and vows or oaths to take, or anything like that.
So enough about us, let's talk about what you really want to know:
What is Meditation, Really?
Real meditation is:
• a form of perception
• a way of getting information
• a precise science
In modern times, people use the word meditation in vague, imprecise, and contradictory ways. In fact, most people have no idea what meditation really is.
Meditation is a state of consciousness. Since consciousness is the basis of perception, meditation is a state of perception.
In the state of meditation, by reflecting on a problem or question, we can find answers, insight, wisdom, guidance.
In the state of meditation, we can perceive what is hidden from the physical senses.
In the state of meditation, there is no debate, dogma, belief, or theory: there is only the experience of what is real.
You can learn more by reading our Pages (http://www.meetup.com/New-England-Meditation-Center/about/), or by attending a class or lecture:
Currently we offer:
• Silent, open meditation sessions a few times a week, where you can come and go as you wish. Drop by, enjoy the peace and quiet.
• Lectures twice a month on alternating Saturdays.
The lectures are recorded, so you can listen to them anytime, or check them out to see if what we teach is a good match for you.
