What we're about

For now, a virtual meditation session using the Zoom app... https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89663872143 - Mondays at 7:00 pm. (Meeting ID 89663872143)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a wonderful opportunity to begin or deepen mindfulness meditation practice, virtually at home, hopefully soon to return to the tranquil forest setting of Monrovia Canyon Park. These free gatherings are great for beginners to advanced meditators.

This is a group for learning and practicing mindfulness, which involves paying attention to present moment experiences with openness and a willingness to be with what is. It is an excellent way to enhance inner peace, reduce stress/anxiety, and improve your overall health.

The sessions typically consist of both sitting and walking meditations, as well as a variety of mindfulness practices in the canyon forest. I think almost all of us have experienced at one time or another the wonder of interconnecting with nature, and how useful the natural setting is for enhancing inner peacefulness and understanding. We meet up once a week at the park's Nature Center and go from there... practicing how to more fully enjoy and experience each moment of life.

The regular sessions are usually both outside in the canyon and in the Nature Center. Chairs are available for the inside sitting meditations... if you prefer to use a meditation cushion please bring one along. We frequently do meditative trail walks in Monrovia Canyon to practice mindfulness in the midst of nature. Periodically, we have day-long silent mindfulness retreats that include formal and informal meditation/mindfulness practices.

The Nature Center at Monrovia Park is located at the very end of the park road. It's about 3/4 mile past the kiosk as you enter the park - just keep driving until the road ends into a parking lot by the nature center.
