Roswell (North Metro Atlanta) Mindfulness Meditation
The purpose of this group is to support each other in developing (and continuing!) our own mindfulness meditation practices and, in a more general sense, to actively build community, one of the core features of Sunday Assembly. Each week, we have a 30-minute mindfulness meditation session, but it's bookended by lively discussion of our own meditation experiences and topics like self, existence, the nature of intimacy, relationships, and many other things. While there are many (too many?!) resources for those who are new to mindfulness meditation, here are a few that folks in our group have noted as having been helpful to them: Two-minute Happify video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqoxYKtEWEc) Sam Harris' book, "Waking Up" especially chapter one (http://www.samharris.org/podcast/item/chapter-one) (provided both as text and as audio) David Nichtern meditation instruction (http://youtu.be/yMz_UagXkFk) If you're concerned about not being able to meditate for 30 minutes, please don't let that stop you! You can meditate as much or as little as you want during the 30 minutes and then just quietly daydream until time is up and we'll never be the wiser. :)

What we're about

Sunday Assembly Atlanta is a life-celebrating congregation without deity, dogma, or doctrine. Our free monthly celebrations feature wonderful speakers, irresistible songs, and inspiring service projects. Our motto: live better, help often, wonder more. Our mission: to help everyone find and fulfill their full potential.

Sunday Assembly Atlanta is part of the international movement of people who want to celebrate the one life we know we have. Together, we are Sunday Assembly Everywhere. When traveling, look for other Assemblies in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Boston, Edinburgh, Oxford and London.

We are here for everyone who wants to:

* Live Better. We aim to provide inspiring, thought-provoking and practical ideas that help people to live the lives they want to lead and be the people they want to be

* Help Often. Assemblies are communities of action building lives of purpose, encouraging us all to help anyone who needs it to support each other

* Wonder More. Hearing talks, singing as one, listening to readings and even playing games helps us to connect with each other and the awesome world we live in. The Sunday Assembly

1. Is 100% celebration of life. We are born from nothing and go to nothing. Let’s enjoy it together.

2. Has no doctrine. We have no set texts so we can make use of wisdom from all sources.

3. Has no deity. We don’t do supernatural but we also won’t tell you you’re wrong if you do.

4. Is radically inclusive. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their beliefs – this is a place of love that is open and accepting.

5. Is free to attend, not-for-profit and volunteer run. We ask for donations to cover our costs and support our community work.

6. Has a community mission. Through our Action Heroes (you!), we will be a force for good.

7. Is independent. We do not accept sponsorship or promote outside businesses, organizations or services.

8. Is here to stay. With your involvement, The Sunday Assembly will make the world a better place.

9. We won’t tell you how to live, but will try to help you do it as well as you can.

10. And remember point 1… The Sunday Assembly is a celebration of the one life we know we have. What should you expect from a Sunday Assembly event? Just by being with us you should be energized, vitalized, restored, repaired, refreshed and recharged.

No matter what the subject of the Assembly, it will solace worries, provoke kindness and inject a touch of transcendence into the everyday. But life can be tough… It is. Sometimes bad things happen to good people, we have moments of weakness or life just isn’t fair. We want The Sunday Assembly to be a house of love and compassion, where, no matter what your situation, you are welcomed, accepted and loved. Most of all, have fun, be nice and join in.
