Next Meetup

Discovering Stillness - Perspectives and Practices
This September, the meetup will resume with fresh topics and a similar format. Note: we're in a new location (still on campus) which will allow us to head over to the cafe for tea and a visit after events if we wish. Meetups will explore techniques for self-inquiry and meditation, featuring exciting material from a variety of spiritual teachers including: Eckhart Tolle, J. Krishnamurti, Ramana Maharishi, Mooji, Rupert Spira, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Alan Watts and others. Each evening will include short thought-provoking videos from some of today's most inspiring teachers, as well as passages from relevant literature, meditation practice time, group sharing and 'time out' from our busy lives. Some topics explored might include: non-duality, spiritual awakening, self-inquiry, the nature of the self/'I am', mindfulness, divinity, love, suffering and relationships. Join us and help make this a meaningful monthly gathering! Fall topics: September: Discovering Stillness - Perspectives and Practices that Help to Cultivate Inner Peace October: Eckhart Tolle - Thinking vs. Being November: Mooji - Invitation to Leave our Thoughts Behind December: J.
