What we're about

We're a group of laid back and genuine people that get together for meditation, movies, book clubs, thoughtful discussions, and socializing.

We don't charge for membership, and most of our meetings are free. When we do ask for contributions, they are only to cover our costs.

If you ever would like to contribute to our group, or to the space where an event is being held, you can give a buck or two to the organizer of the event, letting them know where you want your contribution to go, or you can click the link below to contribute online:

Tuesday After Work Yoga

Location visible to members

Saturday yoga has been so delightful that we want more. Still by donation, still in the gorgeous and ever-changing upper gallery at Art Works (320 Hull Street). Like this: 6 pm Gentle Yoga into Sound Bath with Annie Peace: If you think you can't do yoga, or you crave a restorative, nurturing practice, this is the class for you. You are welcome here. 7 pm Vinyasa into Meditation with Reilly Meng: This is a more active practice, still warm and nurturing but more warming and challenging. Not sure if it's for you? Come out to try it, do what you can!

Midweek Meditation: Guided Chakra meditation

Ed's House

If you would like to unwind from the busy work week by meditating with some like minded people, please feel free to join me at my home this Wednesday evening. We will be doing a guided meditation that makes use of sound, visualization, and awareness to open up the chakras and increase your energetic flow. Afterwards we will have some mindful discussion and I will serve an array of herbal teas for anyone that wishes to have some. Please bring a meditation cushion, chair, pillow or whatever you use to meditate. I hope to see you out! Warmest regards, Ed Ratchford [masked] NOTE: I only have room for 17 people in my family room and this meditation has been filling up quickly of late. So please RSVP early if you wish to attend, but only if you are fairly certain that you will make it. Most weeks we have a waiting list.
