The purpose of this meditation 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, in the northwest OTP area.
We will have a 30-minute mindfulness meditation session, starting around 7:45, bookended by the opportunity for each person to share how they are doing and what they are bringing into and out of their meditation experience.
There are two little steps that are brick-height to get in the front door. Meditation will be held on the ground floor, where there is also a bathroom available. There are two dogs and a cat with all the attendant pet dander.
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. :)
